Jessica Johnson and Michael Odent have created a fascinating exploration of our links with water from birth to death. Johnson has captured remarkable images of underwater births, pregnant women swimming with dolphins, and infants and babies swimming underwater--eyes open, breath held, delighted expressions on their faces. Odent's accompanying text is explanatory and he brings an interesting, off-beat approach to subjects such as birthing in a female environment, the role of water in sexuality, and whether or not humans were once sea mammals. Jessica Johnson's beautiful photographs, though, are what will bring you back to this book again and again. We Are All Water Babies
is a wholly evocative and engaging book.
