Format: Paperback
I am a student who stumbled upon home birth and have become passionate about the topic in every way I had never dreamed of. This piece of work is inspiring and beautiful. So truthful, brave and astounding. A must read for all women, and everyone they know. This book has so many interesting facts, quotes and stories. This is not just a book for home birth moms, doulas or midwives this book is worth reading for anyone who cares about their body and having children. I will buy a copy of this to save for my future children. Five stars.

I am a PhD poet and a birth doula and this is a truly incredible book. Beautiful, lyrical, tearful and joyous. It is a meditation, memoir, poem, conversation and meditation on birth, friendship, the power of women and the nature of trust. Does our government trust us? Do doctors trust women's bodies to give birth as they were made to do? Do we trust ourselves to do so? Who do we trust as the laboring woman? I can't stop reading this book and rereading it. It is such a lovely lyrical poemic meditation on bodies and the power found when we invest in the power of corporeality. This book should be read by every mother, every aunt, every grandma, every doula, every poet, every person giving birth or who knows someone giving birth.

A must read. Inspirational, educational, truthful poetics, and deeply heart-moving.
I had my first child at home, water birth. Nothing in my life compares, nor can words, to the beauty of this part of my life. I truly wish every women would allow themselves to experience their nature, an experience we have evolved for, and once had, will cherish for the rest of days. This poemic brings together truths, research, deep emotions, and poetry to support a part of humanity, childbirth, that has been robed from so many women through fear, financial greed, and ignorance.
My husband, who was my doula and supported me in every which way, gave this book to me.

I purchased this book on impulse. When I started it, I realized that I would soon learn a lot about the benefits of homebirth, what it means to be a mother and bring life into this world, what it means to lose a life before it's even left your womb and what it means to a mother that must mourn for that loss. I am a twenty-two years old and am a soon to be college graduate. I am also a male. None of this left me disinterested. I finished the book in a couple hours and was amazed at how well two writers could collaborate and create a moving, informational, and personal poemic. Do not shy away from this book because you may not be interested in the subject matter. You may be surprised to find that it's a well-crafted, well-structured work of writing that shows what it means to be a true parent and a caring person.
