Only book you need,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blooming Birth: How to get the pregnancy and birth you want (Paperback)
I know what's not very descriptive but honestly, it is.
This book encouraged me to have a birth plan, which I originally didn't care all that much about (just go with the flow was my approach) and even though the birth didn't go according to plan AT ALL I was prepared for that - again, thanks to this book.
Lucie Atkins details everything you need to know (and I say that without hesitation) in a way that doesn't patronise, doesn't sugar-coat, says it as it is plain and clear. And (especially if this is your first baby) trust me that is what you need. It is even good for partners to read and I would even encourage them to do so.
Honestly, even if you're getting your info mostly from the internet, get this book. I got mine for about £3 second hand, it is WELL worth it, I cannot emphasise enough!
