The VBAC Companion: The Expectant Mothers Guide to Vaginal Birth After Caesarean'

A good book to start with if you are considering VBAC.
-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.

Not particularly VBAC but makes you realise what women can do in an informed and supportive environment.

-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.

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.
-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).
