    I am a doula in N.California and I have been encouraging my clients to use this skills resource for almost two years now. The outcomes are phenomenal, compared to before people were learning some skills. There are other skills-based methods out there, but none as complete and useful as the Pink Kit, in my experience. The DVD gives a great overview of the material, including how to map your own pelvis, which is great information to have for 3-D visualizations of the baby's descent, and knowing when baby needs help and what specific kinds of help will be effective. The pdf books are also very useful, especially the information about breathing through contractions and working together, as a couple, to help the baby be born. Most helpful is the audio CD on the "Internal Work" which helps a woman realize where she is tight inside the birth canal and how she can practice with directed breathing and her partner's very gentle massage ahead of time to soften and expand, so that the pushing phase of labor can be quicker.

    Some people feel a bit overwhelmed by all the information, but think of the preparation you would do to run a marathon, or drive a race-car. Labor is a huge endeavor, and having a few skills in your back pocket in case of need feels good going into it. I have found that even when couples do only a little practice, it seems to make a difference. Learning skills means taking responsibility for your own body and your own baby and your own birth, and for most of us, that is a good thing, resulting in a feeling of empowerment and lasting joy. No one can predict what will happen in any one birth, but being prepared for various possibilities is a smart way to go.

    Mother of God....this has to be the most painfully written assembly of information I've ever encountered. It physically hurt my brain to slog through the hundreds of pages of extraneous verbage contained within the pink kit. And the crazy extra length made it super stressful for us to fit into our schedules.

    Honestly, the author is more interested in telling you how important the pink kit is than in telling you what you need to know. Easily 1/3 of the words here are dedicated to describing in imprecise language how important the pink kit is. Its almost like they are trying to brainwash you.

    Common Knowledge Trust: Its relatively easy to write a 600 page book on birthing better, its far harder (BUT far more valuable) to get that information down into a digestible length. Thats what I should be paying you for, competent delivery of information...alas you're no good at it. You've made plenty of money on this since 1991, pay someone who knows the material to re-write it. Please do your future customers this favor.

    Clear and concise writing would make this a no-brainer to buy, but I can only recommend that you find someone who has done it and pay them double to give you the cliff's notes presentation over a couple of hours. I would give that 10 stars.

    I purchased a digital pink kit download from their website couple weeks before my due date. So I had to learn all the skills very quickly. It has very good info you wont find anywhere else. I have to say that at first it was very confusing for me, but if you don't understand something, you can always contact them.

    I would recommend buying this as soon as possible before due date so that you can learn all of the skills and learn about your body and pelvis.

    You can learn how to relax in your pelvis, to make the contractions more productive and to achieve a quicker labor.

    I think it's a must for everyone, especially for those attempting to have a natural birth. It helped me manage my labor.

    Your birth experience will be positive no matter the outcome, if you apply the skills.

    I bought these DVDs in preparation for our first child, and overall, the info IS helpful. However, it's very hard to get past the video quality. It was shot in the early 90s I believe. I feel like this info should be re-shot for today's mom's and dads, even in the info is completely the same. The 80's/90's clothing (tight neon spandex with socks) is a little distracting... my husband couldn't take it seriously.

    Overall, I think it's a bit overpriced for what it is... but I'm finding there are very few "natural" childbirth tutorial dvds out there, so there wasn't much choice. If you can get past the visuals, it can definitely be helpful, but I wouldn't purchase alone. I would definitely do l&d classes with a doula/midwife in addition.

    I loved how this kit improved my understanding of the anatomy of the birthing process, but watching the DVD and reading the pdfs felt like such a chore. It's boring, repetitive, and of poor visual quality. I think it would be fantastic for someone with a long attention span and a lot of of patience.

    First of all, this kit is very poorly laid out. There is a long booklet to read, a DVD to watch, and two audio CDs. Each item assumes that you haven't familiarized yourself with the others, so they repeat themselves quite a bit.

    That is my second complaint about this kit -- the redundancy. It seems like every time they they start a new section, they start by telling you how good the Pink Kit is and how much you need their skills. There is so much fluff! On the booklet at least I can skim over the parts that they've already told me about 100 times, but in the CDs you have to wait for them to finish their speech.

    I do think that the content of this kit is decent. There is some wisdom in what they have to offer, which is why I continued with the whole thing. But I'm not convinced it's any better than taking a local class that instructs on a child birthing method, such as Bradley.

    Their language seems to be a bit shaming at times, almost implying that it's your fault if you don't cope with labor well, that you should have just prepared better and practiced more.

    Unfortunately the instructions that they give on how to implement some of these skills are lacking. They try to tell you how to manipulate certain parts of the body and certain positions to use, but the instructions here are ironically brief, considering how lengthy they are in describing the importance of using their skills.

    In summary, while I do think it's important to prepare for birth, I would not recommend this as the tool to do it.
