I’m super excited. Today I received the printed materials for my course (through Childbirth International). I didn’t buy one for the first module or last module because the first one I have already completed and feel good about just skimming online. The last module is pretty short and is mostly self-reflective activities. The two books that I bought were the ones I knew I’d do lots of writing and highlighting in. I have completed the physiology module as well, but I feel it is important to re-study that since it has been a while.
Also, I only had to buy them because I threw away the old ones a long time ago when we moved (I thought I wouldn’t ever have the opportunity to be a childbirth educator where we live). I hate that I did that AND I got rid of a ton of brand new books. But I guess it is what it is.
I also ordered many books from Thriftbooks that I will be getting in next week.
These are either books that I will use for reference, will read through, or have read before and feel they are worth having again.
I can’t wait to receive these so I can get started! I have so many books that I want to read, now, that I don’t even know where to start! I will say that most of these books aren’t on the required reading list so they will have to wait. But I am excited to have them.
I got all of these for about $4 each on average. I love Thriftbooks! They are usually pretty used but it’s worth it for the reduced cost.
