I am often asked for suggestions for good books dealing with fertility/pregnancy/birth/ breastfeeding/etc. I actually have a pretty big library- because I love books so much, I don't hesitate to buy whatever catches my eye. Anyways, I thought I'd make a quick list of what I have "in stock," so that if anyone wants to borrow, he/she can just let me know what they'd like. I am not opposed to mailing books, either. So if you'd like to check something out (of my own personal library :-) ) don't hesitate to ask- knowledge is power, people!
