    Hey all,

    I skulked AllNurses as a nurse and I'm now half way through training as a midwife in the National Maternity Hospital in Dublin. We see over 8000 births a year and we are the main referral centre for the whole of Ireland. It's busy!

    The main text book I use is Myles Textbook for Midwives. It covers everything!

    Another fab book is 'CTG Made Easy by Susan Gauge and Christine Henderson'

    If you want a good read, there is a swries of 3 books by an Irish author called Sinead Moriarty. The first id called 'The Baby Trail' and is about the journey a woman goes on when trying to concieve. By the end of this book she had decided to adopt a child and so he second book is called 'A Perfect Match'. The third and final book is called 'From Here to Maternity'. The books had me laughing out loud and crying like a baby. I'd highly recommend them.

    Anyway, I have exams this week, first one in the morning! So wish me luck!

    Labor and Delivery In My Pocket: An Emergency Reference (Spiral-bound)

    I'm SOO disapointed that this book is apparently unavailable!! I've searched and searched. Strange to not even find it on Ebay too! I am new to L&D and feel this would be such an asset to my work...

    anyone know where I could get my hands on a copy?

    "The Thinking Womans Guide to a Better Birth" by Henci Goer

    Great book!

    Also:

    "The Birth House" by Ami McKay
    (a novel ) but a good read.

    Also:
    "Ina May's Guide to Childbirth" by Ina May Gaskin

    :wink2: Enjoy!

    I recommend The Red Tent. It is a wonderful biblical story. It is a fiction story told through the eyes of Dinah, the daughter of Leah and Jacob. In the story Dinah is a midwife. It made me cry.

    I just recently read the book Pushed by Jennifer Block. Loved it! Would recommend it to anyone in the OB field or any woman who is pregnant or planning to have children anytime soon. Makes you take a step back and look at how the OB community and the process of birth has changed for mothers, nurses, midwives, and doctors.
