it was amazing

This book is perfect for those trying to decide what to do with their birth options, and even better for those trying to explain their desire to "go natural" to their friends or relations. It is so sad that in this day, you have to explain and defend your choice to NOT be operated on or filled with hormones - but this book gives very good, concise information to help inform others exactly WHY those options are not necessarily the route you want to take. It does not demonize the hospital birth so much as put it in its (I believe) proper place - a thing that very FEW of us should need, rather than most of us. Everything in its place, including the always debated epidural. It put my mind at ease, having read it a few weeks before getting ready to give birth with my midwife, and helped reaffirm that I did make the right decisions for myself.
