Knowledge is power! I tell that to all my doula clients. The more you know about birth, and your options in birth, the better your chances are of having your ideal birth experience.  

A great way to gain all of this valuable knowledge is through reading! There are billions of books that exist out there.
Many of them about birth!
I own quite a few.
And all of my clients are allowed, and encouraged, to borrow as many as they like! 

 

So I thought I'd compile an easily accessible list right here! I'm sure my collection will continue to grow, but I'm fairly happy with having all of this knowledge at my fingertips :)
