Even though I'm hoping to live in a place that has midwives and doulas that love home birth and to be a low risk in that sense as well, this book is fantastic. Much more than just dealing with getting your ideal birth in a hospital, this is the first book I've actually read that directly confronts "What does giving birth feel like?" This is a question that I feel haunts many women. Reading birth stories, even, don't give a good description of this, because the mother's recollections are colored, and just so beyond the pale of our normal experiences. This book is invaluable. By far my favorite childbirth book I've read.
