Re: In case I don't get an epidural . . .
"Active Birth" is a great book! I agree with that suggestion. Another great one is "The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth." It gives very thorough information on basically anything that could possibly happen in childbirth, in any possible setting.
This pregnancy I'm not certain yet where I'll be delivering because DH is job-searching and we could end up moving before the baby's born, so I've been trying to prepare for any setting since it will really depend on where we end up living at that time. That book was really helpful for me. I find that a lot of natural childbirth books, while they are full of great information, are written to home-birthers, so they can be tough to pick apart if you're planning a natural hospital birth.
Babywearing, CDing SAHM. I love my DH and my 3 sweet girls, looking forward to meeting team green baby #4 April 2013.
