really liked it
bookshelves: birth-pregnancy

I really enjoyed this book. Having had two natural births personally and finding pregnancy and birth very fascinating this was a great read. I have considered becoming a doula (not sure if that will ever happen) but even if I never do discussing births and encouraging friends in their plans for natural births will at least always be a "hobby" of mine.

I liked the author's honesty. It was neat to hear some history of midwives, all types. I appreciated that she didn't leave out details of difficult births. She painted a clear but realistic picture. Both of my young sons were born in the hospital but I appreciate the stories about home births, it truly is inspiring to read about many great experiences women can have.

I do have to give a warning for those who prefer to read books without language, there were a few "f" and other words used, which was a turn-off for me...despite this I still liked the book but I could have done without it (even though it is real to life, the author quoting her clients' stories).
