We have created the following list of some suggestions for pregnancy, birth and early parenting. As we work closely and educate our clients, it is important they have some sources of information to turn to, to help decide on the best methods for them, and to better prepare for the future ahead when your baby arrives.
We will continue to update this list in order to support and educate our clients and visitors. If you have found a book that you think was particularly helpful. Please suggest it to us, so we can add it to our list and share this information among our community.
