For anyone who is about to have a baby, actually for anyone at all, I highly recommend the book Spiritual Midwifery. Full of positive birth stories and sound advice - it is a classic.
It was written by Ina May Gaskin, one of The Farm Midwives. This group was a ‘…spirited group of women who taught themselves how to deliver babies on a 1970s hippie commune, rescued modern midwifery from extinction, and changed the way a generation thought about childbirth.’
This is the trailer to the film they have made about their experiences. It is called Birth Story…
