Q: I have been recently asked by my best friend to be with her when she gives birth to her second child. She would like me to be an active participant in the birth, specifically she wants support in her desire to have a natural childbirth. I am wondering what kind of advice or tips the readers of Ohdeedoh can give me in preparation for this joyous event. Specifically does anyone know of any good books I could read or what I should bring to the hospital?

Editor: What an honor that she wants to include you in this experience. Readers, do you have recommendations for books Chelsey should read or general advice to share with her?
