Whether you are interested in having natural childbirth or not, this is a must read in my opinion for every pregnant woman. The book is full of stories of women’s experiences in labor — each has a different and equally interesting birth. It’s important to read so that you mentally are not afraid but excited and empowered for labor and realize no matter how each labor went in the book all turned out ok, healthy mom and healthy baby. It really helped me understand that if all these woman can do it, so can I. More importantly, if you mentally can get yourself in the right place before labor you are closer to having the birth experience you want than if you walk in anxious or uncertain.
