it was amazing

This book has brought surprising awareness to the way births proceed. I've been constantly embarrassed, as the birth of my boy approaches, to realize my own understanding of birth has been largely shaped by movies and TV. That understanding has been drastically limited and aimed at only the last few minutes, out of hours/days, of the birth process.

If you really want to begin understanding how people come into this world after they've developed in the womb, read this book. Maybe you'll avoid my situation of thinking you're finally getting sex education well into adulthood.
