reading list.

It’s been quite the pleasure these past 8 months to track the growth of our baby and to learn about pregnancy and childbirth.  Below are some books I would recommend.  Update:  I added the books mentioned by Lina (books 8-12).  I’ve heard great things about them from my Bradley instructor as well.  Really anything by Dr. Sears is good.  And Lina, I would agree, “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” by Fisenberg would now be last on my list of things to read when there’s so much more relevant and real stuff out there.
