Books to come

I finished Hypnobirthing by Marie F. Mongan (2005) today. I’ll review it later.

Next I think I’m going to change pace a little bit and read Mother Goose, Mother Jones, Mommie Dearest: Biblical Mothers and Their Children by Cheryl Kirk-Duggan and Tina Pippin, editors (2009). It isn’t a pregnancy or childbirth book proper, but it offers intellectual food for thought on what the Bible says about mothers and motherhood, and I’ve often struggled to embrace and feel comfortable with my identity as a mother. The book does have an excellent essay on the history of anesthesia in childbirth and the 19th century debate on Gen. 3:16a, which I have already read.
