Read in November, 2007

It's books like this that really make it clear to me that mainstream culture is completely ass-backwards, especially when it comes to healthcare (and most specifically, OB/GYN). 20 years of successful natural, positive, non-damaging childbirth on The Farm goes a long way toward proving that routine hospitalization of healthy laboring mothers, with its accompanying sexual assault and dehumanization, is in desperate need of re-evaluation.

This book presents the subject of midwifery in a gentle, fun, and unbelievably energetic manner. It combines a variety of honest case studies with sound medical information, and never loses sight of the profoundly beautiful and cosmic experience of delivery.
