nurture book-best pregnancy books-Erica Chidi Cohen

Nurture by Erica Chidi Cohen

 

Nurture is a must read for every expecting parent. It truly covers everything from what to expect during each month of pregnancy to preparing for birth, breastfeeding, and the stages of labor. My husband has loved reading it with me, as it really prepares partners for every stage of pregnancy and birth. I have turned to this book many times for trimester specific holistic remedies, recipes, and even yoga poses!

Gentle Birth Choices by Barbara Harper

 

Every parent is faced with a myriad of choices when it comes to pregnancy, labor, and birth. Trust me, it can feel pretty overwhelming. The renowned childbirth advocate, nurse, midwife, and mother really walks one through the different options in this wonderful book. She dispels medical myths and walks you through how to have the most gentle and positive birth in an array of different birth environments – at home, in a hospital, or in a birthing center. A must read before making big choices about your journey to parenthood.

Spiritual Midwifery by Ina May Gaskin

 

You’ve probably heard of Ina May Gaskin before, as she is one of the most famous home birth midwives in the US. Her book spiritual midwifery was first published in 1976 and introduced an entire generation of young women to the possibility of home birth and breast feeding. The book really breathed new life into the all-but-vanished- field of midwifery. Many additions later, her book is still incredibly educational and a wonderful resource to read about positive birth stories. Something I’ve found incredibly encouraging through my pregnancy.

The First Forty Days by Amely Greeven, Heng Ou, and Marisa Belger

 

While I loved reading this book, this is a resource I’ve really passed to my husband to take notes on. The first forty days after birth in many cultures is the time for the new mother to rest and bond with her baby. This book walks you through the art of caring for the woman during this time of recovery. The book includes 60 simple and delicious recipes for healing soups, replenishing snacks, and calming and lactation boosting drinks – all formulated to support the new needs of the mother and her body.

Ina May's Guide To Childbirth by Ina May Gaskin

 

Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth is an international bestseller for a reason. Drawing on over 40 years of experience, May shares inspiring real life and positive stories of birth that she herself has witnessed. She also walks the reader through what truly happens during labour and the wonderful capabilities of the female body. I found this book incredibly useful because it is so educational and informative. Her tips for creating a comfortable environment for birth and how to maximize your chances of having a joyful birthing experience are things every pregnant woman should read!
