5.0 out of 5 stars "Imperative to your baby's first breath ", 14 Jan. 2002
This review is from: Birth without Violence (Paperback)
This book will open your eyes and your heart. I have been recommending this book and lending my copy out to every expecting mother that I come across! It is in poem form -( don't let that put you off)- The explanations and actions that it gives you,( or more the choices for you to act upon)- are the most true to one's soul. As a woman, as a mother to be,as a powerful nurturing spirit- you have such a part to play and this book brings about confidence in doing so, with many finely tuned powerful "causes" in birth and the "effects" are more rewarding once you have read it and understood.
I wondered why instantly "what on earth people were thinking of in hospitals in this sterile world we live in !" Yes,it isn't always possible with a first birth to do everything this book suggests- but you can be as close to it as possible- it's the knowledge of it's effects that is important- The pictures of how babies look after being brought into the world through the intentions explained in the book, are phenomenal and make you want to be part of it instantly.
It's Powerful from beginning to end- your heart will explode. You can bring a baby into the world knowing he or she will gain so very much more trust and peace - it is afterall it's first exprience of our world- and how it feels in birth will have such a large imprint on it's conciousness - so you have a great chance to make sure this is as positive as possible. Which is such a vital part to play as a parent. You will be contributing to making sure this happens, without a doubt and that is why it is so very special. Enjoy.

I am the writer of this review 10 years ago and glad to see it is still on here! I am now a hypnobirthing teacher, Advanced Therapist in pre and post Natal pregnancy and offering Workshops in empowering birth and the celebration of it ! Thanks to this book I realise this is what I was born to do : ) This book is still very significant as I connect with midwives and doulas....its an inspiration for any expectant mother.
