I do not have children nor am I currently pregnant, however I am interested in topics related to pregnancy and babies and hope to one day be pregnant. I read this book from cover to cover, which may not be how most people read this book.

I didn't have a birth plan when I had my daughter, which was probably a good thing since I would have been disappointed when she was born six weeks early and all my plans went out the window.
But if you're pregnant, thinking about becoming pregnant or know someone who is pregnant, this book presents a great overview of the options women have in terms of where to have their babies, what sort of interventions if any they want and how the early hours of the baby's life will be spent.

Great book to read in the second trimester. It covers all the traditional choices and options for birthing. For the most part it has a balanced viewpoint. I think it's best read before a birthing class to give the class more depth. Once I finished it was easy to write a birth plan and feel most certain on what kind of birth options I would like.
