Editorial Reviews

Review

Eight months pregnant and feeling disappointed about the need for a C-section, The Gift of Birth helped me experience my son's birth in a more meaningful way. When he was later transferred to the NICU, the spiritual exercise of reminding myself to look for the work of the Holy Spirit infused my days with grace. -Heidi Indahl, author of the blog Work and Play, Day by Day When I gave birth to my sixth child, there was a moment at the end when I thought that I had lost all strength, that my baby would die and it would be my fault. (Fortunately, everything turned out fine!) It wasn't until I read The Gift of Birth that I learned how excruciating self-doubt is a sign of the Holy Spirit at work in the birthing process. Susan's book helped heal a very painful memory. The wisdom in this book is a great blessing to all mothers, whether expecting or experienced. -Karee Santos, co-author of The Four Keys to Everlasting Love: How Your Catholic Marriage Can Bring You Joy for a Lifetime Pregnancy and motherhood are such deeply spiritual times, but so often we are too consumed by our "to do" lists and worries and preparations to take time apart to let the experience resonate deep within our souls. The Gift of Birth by Susan Windley-Daoust is the perfect companion for both expectant and veteran mothers. -Mary DeTurris Poust, author of Parenting a Grieving Child: Helping Children Find Faith, Hope, and Healing after the Loss of a Loved One
