    A Guide to Effective Care in Pregnancy and Childbirth by Murray Enkin. I also like Varney's Midwifery.

    MIchelle L. Murray's " Labor and Delivery Nursing A guide to Evidence- Based Practice" is a very good book for new grad. It is my third year in L&D, I still look it up frequently when I have questions . It is very helpful.

    all of the above, especially if you need to learn more about physiology. For practical day to day inormation, I love the labor progress handbook for positioning, etc. we keep a copy on the unit now especially when we're just running out of ideas.
