“Amy Glenn has a poet's heart and voice. She integrates this lyric voice into a moving memoir of life experiences: her own and those she has witnessed in her work as mother, wife, doula, teacher, and chaplain. I recommend Birth, Breath, & Death to any person who appreciates well-crafted narratives of growth and transformation, especially those professionals engaged in the work of spiritual and physical nurture.” --Tedford J. Taylor, Clinical Ethicist, Chaplain, Director of Pastoral Care & Training at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Hamilton
"I found the book a very fast read, but I also found myself re-reading, lingering, pausing to think and to settle into the peace and love that pervades every word in this little but powerful book...She probably doesn't begin to consider herself A Teacher, but I would gladly sit at her feet and just soak up her inborn and learned wisdom." -- Peggy Vincent Author of Baby Catcher
