    I needed a book that would explain to my mother the ways of natural childbirth. I have a doula and receive care from a midwife. This was written by a Dr. and covered what to expect when you go the extreme medical route. It was so far from what I wanted my mother to gain from her experience and know going into it that I didn't even give her the book. It had some good advice, but not nearly enough to justify asking my mom to read the whole thing. I would recommend "The Doula Guide to Birth". A much more informative book, and funny enough, it's where I learned about this book for grandparents. I would suggest that if you do ask the grandparents to read any birthing book, that you read it first. I'm glad I did.

    This book is really one of a kind; most birth books don't talk about the grandparents' role. It offers lots of helpful advice, like how to help your daughter through her pregnancy, what foods to offer when she comes to visit, and how to prepare for attending the birth -- it even has a checklist of items to take with you to the hospital. It describes the different ways you can help in the delivery room, whether you want to be just there for moral support or want a more active role. In addition, the book has chapters about child-proofing your house for grandchildren, a history of childbirthing practices, and a plain English description of new obstetric technology -- it even has a sensitive chapter about stillbirth, which most birth books ignore. I found this book really helpful and recommend it to all grandparents, even those who aren't really interested in attending the birth -- there is plenty of other information you can use.
