really liked it
Read in October, 2008

I read this book in preparation for the birth of my second child; it was recommended by my midwife. The intended audience is a birth partner (pretty obvious from the title, eh?) but it is a great book for a mother-to-be as well. I thought it was much better preparation for childbirth than the chapters in many of the popular pregnancy manuals. I especially appreciated the detailed, extensive info on comfort and coping techniques. I read it first and then had my husband read specific chapters and sections since he wasn't up for reading the entire thing.
