Customer Review

on December 22, 1998
The author shows what the birth of a child would look like if it were done from the point of view of the baby. He does this with a gentle narative and the most amazing photographs of a new born in the act of coming into this world. He also gives birth to something else: to the idea that the baby is fully alive and alert at birth and aware of his/hers surroundings. Be prepared to be horrified at the realization of how babies are "normally" treated, how YOU were probably treated, and what scars that has left. Don't be surprised if you feel a sense of mission of put this book in the hands of every doctor who ever did or ever will receive a license to practice medicine. A good campanion for this book would be anything on the topic Fetal Stimulation, that is: communicating with babies still in the womb eg. the Make Way for Baby video put out by AMPHION Communications or the Brave New Babies program that appeared on The Learning Channel late one night in 1997.
