2) For partner/labor support - The Birth Partner by Penny Simkin

Recommended articles:

1) Who Should Be My Care Provider? The First & Most Important Decision in Pregnancy
2) This Choices in Childbirth resource with special attention paid to these two articles:

a) Questions to Ask Your Care Provider
b) Have You Thought About Having a Doula at Your Birth? -- Lisa can provide recommendations of doulas if helpful; good to note that NYC has doulas available to fit all styles, preferences, and budgets.

3) Nutrition articles (on Google Drive) & this great blog post on vitamins/supplements for pregnancy by my colleague, Lena DeGloma

Be well; see you in class!
