Leslie Jamison's The Empathy Exams provides a collection of personal and heartfelt essays ranging in topics that tie together to address the way in which we process and practice empathy, compassion, and similar emotions. Jamison proves her unique ability to put into words the complexities of the heart, and the inter-connectedness of experiences in terms of how they affect the body, mind, and spirit. While Jamison recognizes the individuality behind our actions and struggles, she succeeds at the same time in tying together the truths that connect us to a common humanity, and offers an overall refreshing and insightful psychoanalysis into the way our emotions and histories drive us.

Spiritual Midwifery, by the famous pioneer of midwifery in the U.S., Ina May Gaskin, is one of the lesser known parenting guides. Though many may have heard of Gaskin's other famous works, such as Ina May's Guide to Childbirth, Spiritual Midwifery is another classic that promotes a rare and beautiful celebration of womanhood in the spirit of home birth in particular. This book especially touches on logistics and procedures that might not be considered in typical family planning, offering well-rounded support and resources for those expecting or for interested midwives, nurses, doulas and more.
