I am planning my first UC in October. I, too, have been wondering what books were best and how to truly prepare. Shoot, I haven't even come to terms that I am pregnant again! I will start buying/ borrowing some of the books mentioned in the coming months.

Re: UCers? how to prepare

About 3yrs ago I thought the same thing. I do not think that at all now. I actually attended a close friends UC as a doula, baby was surprise frank breech. It was a FABULOUS birth! Truly amazing.

I wish I had words of advice for you, but I don't! So good luck in doing your research and making your decision. In Oregon, if you're in the third trimester or something crazy like that then a homebirth with a CPM is covered. But if you get your medical card before that, it's not covered. Which is really goofy and crazy and makes no sense.

I mostly read Heart and Hands, Spiritual Midwifery, and this is where I research before each birth http://www.gentlebirth.org/archives/

I also frequent UC boards, but much less so now that I have had 7 UC's.
