A must read before your first pregancy and again before any other,
This review is from: The Good Birth Companion: A Practical Guide to Having the Best Labour and Birth (Paperback)
I had read quite extensively before the birth of my first child, but really wanted to read something while I was pregnant for the second time to help with some anxiety I was feeling, and to build up my momentum to give birth again.
The Good Birth Companion was the ideal book. In some ways it felt familiar, not only because I had given birth before, but because of the way it was written. I literally felt that Nicole Croft was chatting to me about birth in a very comforting and unbiased way. It is written with a knowing smile, by which I mean it feels positive and reassuring, almost as a mother would be if she were speaking to her child.
The content is extensive and satisfactorily covers many questions that a pregnant mother may have, as well as imparting some pearls of wisdom through personal experience or beliefs, and using visuals or examples that one can easily relate to.
I like the fact it is called the 'Companion Guide', because that is what it is, a friend to you during your pregnancy and the early stages of motherhood. Keep it close it will comfort you.
