Books for Unassisted Birth Preparation

This list is always growing as more books are written! At least a half dozen have come out in the past year - the movement of women to empowerment and self-awareness is expanding! Not all of these books are specifically about unassisted birth, so I've tried to categorize them. The others that I suggest are powerful reads about birth in general, even when they discuss assisted home or hospital birth.
