Extremely Helpful

I appreciated this book because it gives a very nice history of birth, both from the medical side and that of midwifery. It also paints a beautiful picture of birth and really gives you a vision for a birth experience, not a set of do’s and don’ts.

A must for pregnant women!

If you want to be inspired and empowered in choosing the birth that’s best for you and your baby, this book is the perfect place to go. Ms. Harper is thorough and honest, she did her research and presents the facts in a way that is concise and easily understood, by even the newest, youngest mom. This book has the answers.

May Change Your Mind About Your Birth Choices

Excellent book! Absolutely changed my mind about the birth choices I had made – but not in a condemning way. I was prepared to have a hospital birth complete with epidural and all the other ‘bells and whistles’ and now I’m planning a home water-birth!! This book may change your thinking about birth, but in a good way.
