Format: Paperback
Passionate and sincere expression of experience - worth of true acknowledgment! Very informing, at times so moving that tears of joy flow like river :-) Lovely stories of birthkeepers. Helps to remember what once was forgotten. Should not be taken word for word though, as each individual has own unique path of life. For example I got so fixated with the ideas shared, that when I went through with my own birth experience, which was not exactly as I had planned, I fell into remarkably intense depression episode. When I was again able to really listen to my inner voice, I understood that nothing in our lives is met by chance - all has its purpose and we have a choice to think loving thoughts, no matter what comes up. I think that the real message behind this book is to remind us that we have an inner voice that we can always trust, if we choose to listen of course. Thank You, Veronika!

If only every pregnant woman could read this book and understand the biological and universal truths it contains. If only every woman could take these words and reclaim the faith in her body and her baby which our society has become strangely divorced from. If only every pregnant woman could take courage and empowerment from Veronika's words and feel the freedom their power offers. If only every medic could read this book and realise that they have no place in biologically normal birth and that their role in how society views and understands 'safety' has been hyper inflated in quite a dangerous way. If only all of these things... then more babies would be born with freedom and more women would become mothers with the true power of undisturbed birth as part of their legacy to hand to their daughters and sons. Society would change. The world would change. And all for the better.

It was the most wonderful and empowering book.
To be read by all women that need to connect with themselves and especially in the case of being pregnant and needing female strength and support. I have read it twice and my boyfriend loved it too.
Thank you

blows me away 24 Sept. 2009
By N. Evans - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If your pregnant or planning a baby and need the confidence to be able to trust
your body in birthing, then this is the book for you.

This book is about unassisted births (without midwife or Dr's present) but could be used in other circumstances too.
Basicly this book gives lovely unassisted birth stories plus all the reasons and evidence needed to teach you that you can birth naturally without fear.

~LOVE~ 1 Aug. 2011
By Rebekah Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was so beautifully written, so spiritual, so fearless. It is about having a childbirth the way our ancient foremothers did it, following the wisdom of their bodies and trusting that birth is as safe as life gets. If you are considering a homebirth, unassisted OR with a midwife, this is a wonderful book that is sure to make you feel connected to the strong feminine energy that connects all women together, past and present. Just reading it made me feel supported and loved. This book oozes with encouragement and empowerment. I read it earlier this year and I am just starting it again to absorb some more of that strong feminine power. It's as if the book was written by some kind of goddess, a mother to all of us, a great wise grandmother. At the end there are some wonderful true "freebirth" stories, and then a fantastic recommended reading list.

Absolute Must Read for ALL birthing Women!!! 12 Jan. 2010
By G. Levesque - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was an incredible book. I don't think you need to read many other birth books besides this one. The Birthkeepers was amazing from start to end. I will recommend this book to all. If you want an AMAZING birth but aren't sure how to get it get this book!

Not a bad book... 22 May 2013
By M. Hussain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I like the idea of unassisted childbirth and am happy that there are books like this promoting it. My only issues were (and keep in mind, these are just issues I had, you may not think this way, and I am not slamming the book) the strong emphasis on a vegan diet (I can't eat vegan due to health issues, and also, not all UCers eat vegan) and some of the ideas about prenatal bonding were a bit "out there" to me. I can disregard the "out there" ideas (and, hey, to each their own. You might like the ideas) but I think there should have been more emphasis on what is a healthy pregnancy diet, whether or not you eat meat. I have read books that give guidelines for meat eaters, vegetarians, and vegans, and that is what I am more comfortable with. That's just my thought. Overall, it wasn't a bad book by any means.
It will change the way you view unassisted birth 10 Oct. 2013
By New York City Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Truly inspirational. It's amazing how your mind can work in your favor when giving birth at home in a comfortable environment or against it when you are told what to do in what position you should give birth and have a lot of people minding in your business. As someone who had a fairly quick hospital birth full of intrusion, taking my baby away from me right after birth, being told to stay in bed and not move with permission etc I defiantly plan a home birth for my second time around. This book talks about unassisted birth and it make it sound like just a regular part of life just like having sex. Love it. Recommend to anyone, even if u are not thinking about home birth is good to read and get inform what the female body was meant to do.
