I just accosted a pregnant women in Waterstones - I know I shouldn't but I couldn't help it! The books available were a disappointing array of main stream 'nice' books, not one evidence based or challenging. So here is my list of the TOP 5 books for pregnancy and beyond:

Expecting (Anna Mcgrail and Daphne Metland)

The New Pregnancy and Childbirth (Sheila Kitzinger)

Ina May's Guide to Childbirth (Ina May Gaskin)

Stand and deliver (and other brillinant ways of giving birth) (Emma Mahony)

What mothers do (espcially when it looks like nothing) (Naomi Stadlen)

Wouldn't it be a move forward if these were found in all major bookshops!
