Any suggestions on books pertaining to breastfeeding and labor?

I'm not sure on those specific topics, but I love What To Expect in the First Year.

For breastfeeding, I highly recommend The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding. I wished I had read it before I had my first; I was able to nurse my second much longer and I give full credit to this book!

I'm currently reading Your Best Birth by Ricki Lake. I can't think of any other books I've read previously that were much help with labor...

The Sears Breastfeeding Book is great. Not a fan of the What to Expect books.

For breastfeeding info also check out kellymom.com. This is a website published by a lactation consultant so has good and accurate info. I love the What to Expect series.

I used the Sears breastfeeding book and kellymom.com a lot, and found them both really helpful. I had also taken a breastfeeding class through my hospital that I liked too.
With breastfeeding especially its helpful to be prepared and have a handy reference!
