I strongly believe that education is power.  When you are newly pregnancy, there are so many feelings, questions and perhaps concerns.  There are all kinds of resources out there, each with their own slant and opinions about how you SHOULD do pregnancy, birth and parenting in general.

The most important thing is that you be open to learning, pursue the questions that you want answered and take time to listen to your intuition when it comes to making decisions and choosing the support that you want for your family.  Below are a list of books that encourage you to ask good questions and keep an open mind to what kind of prenatal and birth care you will want and what is out there.

The Essential Stay at Home Mom Manual

These are some basics.  There is so much information out there, so if you start to get overloaded, go back to basics and speak with your mom, sister, friend, and spouse about what is important to YOU!
