Explains the different process of pregnancy and childbirth and how the obstacles of fear and ignorance in the mother or those assisting the birth can sometimes be the biggest cause of a long and difficult labour and enhancer of pain in labour. Written by man who truly loves the magic and sacredness of childbirth and appreciates what is required by the mother and for the mother to keep it that way. Well worth reading. Reassuring empowering and educational
One thing to note it was originally written in 1933. So though the overall notion of the book will be always relevant there are some thing that you need to look at from the perspective of that time.
Also would highly recommend to read Janet Balaskas ans Sheila Kitzinger after this to get a more modern and balanced view on active child birth.
