Another inspiring book by Ina May Gaskin,
This review is from: Birth Matters: a midwife's manifesta (Paperback)
Ina May Gaskin is an inspiring writer on the subject of childbirth and midwifery. I have read a couple of her other books before this one and have found they are full of lots of new information about childbirth and are written in a way that is easy to read. This book is no different and I found myself jotting down a few ideas and tips about childbirth. This book is written with a focus on midwifery - from the history to present day to the setting out a manifesta for the future. Although interesting in parts, I did find myself skipping some of the sections which were very dominated by the current situation in USA. The birth stories which feature throughout the book and the chapter which is written for Fathers-to-be were particularly interesting and inspiring.
