Good read, but I would recommend Ina Mays guide to childbirth over this one
It's a good book, lot's of info, I just think it's a bit outdated.. I first read ina mays guide to childbirth THEN I read this, I understand that this looks more at the actual midwifery side of things than the other book that is more about actually giving birth.. but I loved ina mays guide to childbirth and this book was just very average for me. I think this would more be aimed at those who want to become a Midwife or Nurse than those who are pregnant (like myself) and want to read up on childbirth.
