I loved this book. I gloried in the ability of my body this time rather than feeling trapped by the pain of childbirth.

This is a very empowering book about pregnancy and birth. If you have given birth and feel "that can't be how it is meant to be" or if you have never given birth and feel that it is a natural event of life, this is an excellent book for you. If you need a book to tell you "YOU CAN DO THIS" and not about scare tactics, THIS is the book for you. If you need a book to help you work through your fears, THIS is the book for you. It is very difficult for me to let go of this book, but I am in hopes that it helps one woman BIRTH instead of DELIVER!

This book is another MUST read for every pregnant woman. Go to the bookstore and browse through it at least twice in your pregnancy! If you are drawn to it, buy it and read bits on a weekly basis. It covers both physiological and psychological factors beautifully and promotes a woman's INNER STRENGTH and self-confidence in the body's ability to birth. Another required reading for birth doulas training with ALACE (Association of Labor Assistants and Childbirth Educators). GREAT read too, interesting and entertaining.

Great book. Very feel good, very earthy-birthy. Really gets you looking at the mental and instinctive nature of birth.

I read this Book after preclampsia caused my first child's birth to be a rather harrowing experience. It paved the way for an amazing and peaceful second child birth three years later, at home in our garden tub with my my husband and midwives. It just a very well written, research backed book to make you think and understand what you need and want for your child's entrance into the world.

A very useful guide to natural childbirth, with thought exercises and practice pain-management exercises and suggestions for coping.

I am a big fan of this book and only wish that 1) We had received or bought a copy earlier in pregnancy. 2) That we had others to do the birth art and working through things with. I appreciate how it focuses very much on the preparing your mind, body AND SPIRIT. The whole self... Learning things about yourself and fears, growing with your husband and preparing mentally.
