    imenid37- I LOVED that book! Unfortunately I loaned my copy out in nursing school and never got it back, it was the kind of book I could easily have read over & again!

    I'd add to list two books by Henci Goer- "A Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth" (I loan mine out to all pregnant friends) and "Obstetric Myths Vs Research Realities".

    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.
