    Blue Eyes: LOVE the site you posted. I will be a frequent customer. Thought it interesting thought that they listed William's Obstetrics for over $1000.00 dollars, it usually costs around $200, might be a typo though. Otherwise great site.

    I have a couple to add.

    Easing Labor Pain by Lieberman
    Acute Obstetrics By Heppard & Garite
    Benson & Pernoll's Handbook of Obstetrics and Gynecology

    And of course anything out by Michelle Murray.

    Definately will start checking out some of the others mentioned.

    Being in OBGYN for many years, our facility has had the opportunity to participate in Perinatal Continuing Education Program (PCEP). It is approx. 6 months long and recommended renewal every 3-4 years. It is a great reference material and guidelines to follow. Our nursery level is 1 and right now we are taking care of a level 2-3, 33 wk gest twins. I gave oral caffiene for the first time to a newborn!!!!!! I had to do some research first. The PCEP books are great to have in your library or better yet, close by. This program is offered and brought to you out of Oklahoma City, OK (Oklahoma Health Sciences Center), 405-271-7777. This program covers Maternal, Fetal, Newborn, etc.. It would a benefit to just purchase a set of books and review the contents with co-workers and your physicians.

    I agree.

    Went thru PCEP when I was an RN in Oklahoma. I can concur....this series of three books are great, especially for nurses new to ob/newborn nursing! thank you for that suggestion!

    Along the lines of continuing perinatal education, I recommend STRONG-PERIFAX....really gets you thinking critically. And it' s no piece of cake; some of the concepts are quite advanced and do stimulate the mind and refresh the knowledge base.

    I am reading A Place Called Trinity by Delia Parr. It is an excellent fiction book about a midwife in Pennsyvania 1833 who is losing some of her patients to a new MD who just moved to town. Very good, not finished yet so I don't know how it ends. I tried to find Hard Labor, but it is out of print! I will try to find it on the internet somewhere.

    Thanks so much for all the wonderful suggestions - My "wish list" for reading seems to constantly outpace available time, but I am going to put several of these at the top of my list!!

    I have not read "The Red Tent" but have heard very good things about it.

    Another title that a sister-in-law (who is an atty, not in medicine) recommended to me, but that I have not had the opportunity to look for, is titled "Misconceptions"...has anyone heard of it??? It seems to be similar to the title previously described on this thread that goes into all the abuses of the natural birth process perpetuated by the medical system.

    And lastly, I have to put in a plug for one of my favorite all-time nursing books...not in the least related to OB/GYN but should be read by any American nurse..."We Band of Angels". This book details the story of the military nurses forced to evacuate with the troops during the Bataan death march in WWII Phillippines. The story of the sacrifices that these nurses made to care for their troops, the way they improvised, and the subsequent time they spent under Japanese capture in internment camp is incredible reading. Sorry its not OB-GYN reading but I promise you wont be disappointed, especially if you have any interest in history.

    Keep adding your wonderful suggestions, please!!!

    deb,

    this is probably not what you're looking for, but have you heard of the book "immaculate deception ii" by susanne arms? here's a cut 'n paste of the books from peggy vincent's website:

    [font=georgia, times new roman, times, serif]immaculate deception [font=georgia, times new roman, times, serif]
    suzanne arms
    sociology: written in 1975, this classic book is a groundbreaking exposé of childbirth practices, designed to challenge the medical profession and to help american women reclaim responsibility for their own births.


    [font=georgia, times new roman, times, serif]immaculate deception ii: myth, magic, & birth[font=georgia, times new roman, times, serif]
    suzanne arms
    sociology: an updated version of the original, this edition, published in 1994, takes into account the medicalization and mechanization of childbirth that has occurred since the advent of fetal monitors, etc.


    i'm definitely in a "summer read" mode and i'd love to hear if anyone's read this. i've already ordered it from amazon. in fact, i've ordered another book from amazon related to ob.

    must. get. off. amazon.com. their one click buying is getting a little too dangerous for me. :chuckle

    actually, while i'm here, i'll mention peggy vincent's suggested reading list from her site, http://www.babycatcher.net. she has a list of suggested reading books. anyone read these?
    http://www.babycatcher.net/suggested_reading.html i'd love to hear if anyone has read any of these. boy, if i had an unlimited book budget...

    I don't know if you've found it, but you can get it from Amazon. There are a lot of books you can get from them despite their print status.
    Here's "Hard Labor":
    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    It sounds like a fascinating book as well. I've also just ordered "The Diary of a Midwife" in addition to "Immaculate Deception II". Like I said, I MUST get off Amazon as I have hit my "Summer Read Mode." When the weather gets too hot to be outside comfortably, my body wants to do nothing but stay inside and READ READ READ. Amazon is probably going to make a lot of money off me as it's hot early this year.
