Compulsory reading for expectant Mums, 22 Feb 2005
If only this book could be issued to every expectant Mum as part of their antenatal classes. I read this book in conjunction with a hypnobirthing course I followed whilst pregnant with my son. As a consequence I felt a lot more in control of my labour and actually enjoyed it. The mixture of anecdotal observation and clearly explained physiology made the book a real page turner for me. Forget all the other manuals on childbirth you have been recommended, this is the only one worth buying.
