When I was contemplating whether to go ahead with my daughters homebirth 12 years ago, I was recommended the Sheila Kitzenger book on homebirth and it turned out to be the most amazing read, indeed it became my inspiration and help and answered all the questions I had. I went ahead with the homebirth, had the most amazing team supporting me through it.
It's now twelve years later and I am coming up 7 weeks pregnant at 43. I am hoping that the maternity services will back me for another homebirth this time.
I've just ordered myself a copy of Sheila's book, but wondered if anyone has any other books on the subject that they feel has a really great uderstanding of the situation.
