Gives great confidence

So much intuitive yet non obvious birth wisdom is crammed into every page

Well worth the read!

My daughter-in-law was planning a home birth and reading this book; I became interested to read it as well. Being a traditionally trained, retired RN, I found it most informative and encouraging about childbirth in the way it seems God designed for women. More med school students should be reading this!!

Great Book

I would definitely recommend this book for both those considering natural birth and those who plan to have a medicated hospital birth. Either person can benefit from reading this. The best thing about this book is the first half containing all of the birth stories. Some of them are a little weird/cheesy, especially those that take place in the 70's. There is definitely a sort of "hippie" tone to many of them. However, all of the stories were very inspiring and showed the beautiful side of childbirth, which is a nice break from the hectic, terrifying birth scenes we tend to see in the media or hear about in stories. I am hoping for a natural unmedicated birth in the hospital, and reading all of these stories makes me confident that I can do it and birth is not something to fear. The second half of the book, which is more of a guide, is ok. It has some great information but is not incredibly detailed. I would recommend supplementing this book with other books that offer practical advice for labor and delivery. For anyone considering natural birth or who would just like to know more about it, the documentary The Business of Being Born was really interesting. It's on Netflix! But warning, it does have some birth scenes. Also, Walmart had the best price I could find, even compared to amazon, eBay, and half.com. :-) Good luck to those waiting for birth!

Fabulous book!

This book is absolutely awesome! Ina May Gaskin is an amazing and knowledgeable person, and she shares her wisdom with expectant mothers in ways no other book has for me so far. I would deffinately recommend this book to any woman who is or plans to be expecting. The only complaint I have is that it took two weeks for this book to arrive which is much longer then I was told, & I couldn't find ANY tracking information on it.

Love this Book!

I bought this book for my sister to read during her first pregnancy. I swore by this book during both my pregnancies! It is a classic!
