Thank you for sharing! I have read and own quite a few of these, but I am always looking for new books to add to my collection!

If you haven't already read this one, I'd HIGHLY recommend Peggy Vincent's "Baby Catcher: Chronicles of a Modern Midwife". The title is pretty self-explanatory; it's full of amazing, unique, sometimes sad, but overall beautiful birth stories. :)

Mellysa - I LOVE that book! I don't have a number of books on my bookshelf that I would recommend, though, because they got 'borrowed' but never returned ;-) That's one of em.
