    Natural pain relief during labor Best Pregnancy Books for First-Time Moms If this is your first time pregnant, get ready to rely pretty heavily on pregnancy books. In addition, these interventions can disrupt the natural rhythms of labor, undermine womens confidence in our capacity to give birth, and decrease our satisfaction with our birth experiences. Factors that create a climate of confidence include caregivers who listen to you and respect the birthing process; friends and family who provide support; and a birthing environment in which you feel comfortable. It gives you information on both medicated and natural childbirths and leaves the decision up to you. New pregnancy books can offer a fresh take or unique perspectives, and are usually chock full of new research and medical findings.

    And yet this book manages to be a smart, readable guide that is not preachy — a rarity for pregnancy books. She presents the research on holding your babysign language, and baby-led weanin g, empowering mamas to connect and bond during that first year. It really makes you feel better about the whole experience. But what we especially like is how it also thoughtfully tackles lifestyle issues, such as budgeting for baby expenses and the effect pregnancy and baby may have on a marriage. The author is a dad himself, which is, needless to say, a requirement for writing a book like this!

    The second half is about the birth process and the whole biological aspect, which is great for anyone even if you plan on having a hospital birth. Avoiding routine use of other medical interventions when possible. I recognize that there is no sure thing in how nature progresses. The best books for first-time moms will guide you through the next nine months while helping to eliminate the new mom jitters and stress.

Because baby may clock in at under 10 lbs. I recommend this book more as a reference tool rather than a book to read cover to cover. What I can say with absolute confidence is that being armed with knowledge, and knowing what is possible, has eliminated my fears of birth and that itself is worth every little bit of effort I have made.

Often times those decisions, despite our best intentions, are not ours to make. While many pregnancy books touch on nutrition and diet, this guide makes food the main event, offering information on nutrition, how much to eat and recipes for mom-to-be.
