Articles
Ecstatic Birth: The Hormonal Blueprint of Labor
-by Sarah J. Buckley
http://www.mothering.com/articles/pregnanc...n/ecstatic.html



Books(brief overviews by Meelk unless stated)
The VBAC Companion: The Expectant Mothers Guide to Vaginal Birth After Caesarean'
-by D Kortes.
A good book to start with if you are considering VBAC.
Silent Knife
-by N Wainer Cohen & L Estner.
Pretty extreme but very interesting.
Understanding and Teaching Optimal Foetal Positioning
-by J Sutton & P Scott.
This should be a must for every pregnant woman.
Spiritual Midwifery
-by I M Gaskin.
Not particularly VBAC but makes you realise what women can do in an informed and supportive environment.
The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth
-by H Goer. Another essential for all pregnant women.
Mind Over Labour
-by C Jones.
A good introduction to relaxation and visualisation to help you through pregnancy and labour.
Better Birthing with Hypnosis'
-by M LeClair.
More advanced than 'Mind Over Labour' if you think hypnobirthing could be for you.
Birthing from Within'
-by P England.
Not specifically for VBACs but she does talk about it and had a VBAC herself. Focusses a lot on dealing with emotional baggage in preparation for birth.
Misconceptions'
-by Naomi Wolfe.
An interesting look at the gender politics in childbirth, interwoven with her story of c/sec, but doesn't go into the politics of VBAC as the USA is a bit behind us in that respect. (Review by 'peanutsmum).
