For Mothers and Fathers, birth attendees, first timers or the multi-experienced, this book offers so much for every one of us!
What a beautiful way to convey the strength of a birthing woman and how natural and healthy the entire process is.
There are birth stories in the book are not what I want, or will attempt (unassisted home birth and so on). BUT each story shoes a mom doing whatever she has to do in order to do what is best for her baby and her birth. It doesn't matter if you deliver in a hospital or at home alone -- what matters is that YOU make an educated choice based on what you believe and what is best for your situation.
And this is what this book shows us - you can choose, and that you can make anything ok. It opens our eyes to the fact that there is more than one way to birth.
More importantly it shows us positive birth. I am pregnant and everyone has a horror story; a trauma. It is refreshing and reassuring to read positive stories. Yes there are challenges, no nothing goes according to plan - but it is a miracle of birth and a joy to experience. I consider the opportunity to birth this child a blessing and the child a gift - who what's a ugly Christmas morning they'd sooner forget? Make your birth worth remembering.
Thanks Sherri for caring so much about our babies!!! and us mommies too!!
