This was a really great book! A quick read - it's informational and fun. I think anyone who is having children should read this book, especially if you want to have a natural birth. All of the sections are interview style, which makes you feel like you are part of the conversation, which is another aspect I really appreciated. It was full of serious information and studies to back up the claims, but despite that, it was not a heavy, dense book, but a light, enjoyable read. Even though I have already had one natural birth, I still found it helpful and still found some things I learned that I can use for the next time. I recommend this book to anyone who is wanting a natural birth or just having a birth in general. I think there is information that applies beyond just natural birth. If you are wondering whether or not you should read this book, the answer is yes, yes you should.

This is my third baby, never the less I was looking for good resources on pregnancy and delivery. I had my first 16 yrs ago in California and my second was born in England a few years ago. It was actually the English midwives who put fear in my mind about delivering in the States. Every single midwife I saw was obsessed with the US C-section rate. I was looking for resources to help guide me through having a drug-free birth in the US. What I found more scary than the c-section rate was the epidural rate. It seemed to me every book I came upon that was "recommended" by friends all advocated and pushed epidurals. Even that tv show a baby story, it seems like every birth ends with an epidural or c-section.
Most of the books that were more natural based that I found weren't very helpful with the exception of Birthing from Within.
I really loved the Birth book and found that the information was spot on. I really liked reading that there are Ob's out there who are pro a natural birth and how to find the right Ob and hospital.
The advice in the book is very practical and workable. It has been my experience that the hospital nursing staff and the policies are key in having a natural birth.

I really enjoyed reading this book about birth and a different perspective on birth than the normal hospital birth where often times the doctor makes all the decisions. It has 4 interviews, 2 with medical doctors (about being calm and relaxed and another about being fearless) and 2 with mothers (about choosing an OB/GYN or midwife, and about pain management). They focus on being empowered through the birthing process and being knowledgeable about birth and what you want. There are many thought provoking questions that it brings to light that you can ask yourself about how you want your birth to go, and then in turn ask your doctor or midwife. I like that they have interviews with both doctors and mothers so you can get the medical perspective and the "been there, done that" perspective. I also liked that it made me think outside the box a little, but it didn't make you feel like your choice in a hospital birth was wrong. I really liked the feeling of empowerment the book gave me in the birthing process; that my body was made to do this, and ways I can help myself with the birth process.
The book is laid out interview style, which isn't my favorite, but does give you a good sense of why questions were answered in the order that they were as the questions went with the flow of the conversation. I would recommend this book to expectant mothers (even if they have given birth before), expectant fathers who may be able to help their wives in decisions they are unsure of and what to do during the birth to help, doulas, and anyone else who is interested in the birth process who may want to learn more. As thy have stated, the book does not super cede medical advice and needs to be used as a supplementary tool.

The Birth Book was absolutely helpful. It read easily & quickly and was almost like listening in on a conversation next to you that sounds interesting. The really important topics were there such as finding the right provider for your pregnancy & birth, getting through birth, and examples and stories are given to show you why you should really pay attention to what is important to you. Psychological aspects of pregnancy and birth are both talked about in a casual and relaxed way which motivated me (instead of overwhelming me) to focus on dealing with any fears and then to get a game plan together to be ready mentally for a positive experience. Medical studies and evidence are included and there are links for further info. My favorite takeaway was how this book re-frames the way we are used to hearing about having a baby...and it is so refreshing and sensible because it fills in some missing pieces. Plus it made me laugh. Grab and read this book and know that you will have someone whispering helpful things and encouragement in your ear during one of the biggest events in your life.

This book does an excellent job of giving confidence and critical info to expecting moms without being overwhelming. It's a great read for any trimester, but especially great for a first trimester mom to know just enough about birth to make timely decisions about her caregiver. It's a challenge for pregnant women to take in all the info available about pregnancy, only to find out that they are learning about birth itself too late in the game to have the options they want available.
This book is informational and inspirational without being preachy. If you value normal, healthy birth but don't always know how to communicate with friends about healthy evidence based birth choices without being overbearing, this book will do it for you. Birth professionals, get this book for yourself and be prepared to buy several more to pass around to clients and friends.
