Printed Materials and Books

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.
