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

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

    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.

    We all need to understand how to care for women who have suffered physical abuse and rape trauma. I found this book at my local library, by the amazing Penny Simkin:

    When Survivors Give Birth: Understanding and Healing the Effects of Early Sexual Abuse on the Childbearing Woman

    Penny is the master when it comes to helping us learn how to best care for our L/D and post partum patients; she is a nurse and doula. Give this book a try. It's definitely worth a read!!!!! Sometimes, we are at a loss how to deal with the issues these patients bring into the hospital setting. They are vulnerable and often angry, as well as unbelievably traumatized. This book helps us understand how to help them while they are in our care and we are working to build a trustful relationship.

    Any book by Penny Simkin is worth a look. I own several and they never disappoint.

    jennifer block's book is great- i just finished it a little while ago. another one i would recommend that is in the same vein is "born in the usa" by marsden wagner md. he is a perinatologist (ob & neonatology) turned perinatal epidemiologist who basically considers himself as a whistle blower for american maternity care.

    another really interesting one i read a while ago was "birth: the surprising history of how we are born" by tina cassidy.

    "the labor progress handbook" by simkin & ancheta is a must have for l&d nurses!
    and for really learning l&d - "intrapartum management modules" by kennedy, ruth, & martin

    for learning newborns, "physical assessment of the newborn: a comprehensive approach to the art of physical examination" by tappero & honeyfield.

    i'm also a fan of "wise woman herbal for the childbearing year" by susan weed. we have a lot of patients that come in taking herbs and tinctures of all sorts and this has been a good reference.

    Hello & thanks for this wonderful reading list. I can't wait to get to them.

    I'm a pre-nursing student (hopeful eventual L&D RN). I purchased Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler and it seems to be a really good read along the lines of the holistic approach to family planning. This is going around in my circle of married friends who hate the Pill, shot, IUD, etc & it's very informative.

    Also, I know this is a reading forum, but once I started getting really interested in nursing I netflixed The Business of Being Born. It's a Ricki Lake documentary about interventions in modern day L&D and was also very good (IMO). I don't know how all the L&D nurses feel about these more natural approaches, but I'd be very curious to read some feedback.

    These may be somewhere in the 101 responses to the OP, so I apologize if they are!

    I have to ask....what is a "Sticky Thread?"

    Ina May Gaskin has some videos on Youtube, which I found very enlightening.

    Also, "house of babies" shari daniels has some great videos showing some basics to childbirth for new grad L&D nurses.
