If you are pregnant this book is essential reading, especially if you have any fears about 'giving birth', inherited through the trauma of your own birth or aquired from the negative stories which are often shared about the trial and tribulation experienced by others. This book shows THERE IS ANOTHER WAY. The guidance contained in this book is very special and supportive and can help you deal with these fears so that they do not become a blockage during the birthing process. There is guidance and insights for both the mother and the father.
Sunni reminds us how many of us have been brought up in a partriarchal atmosphere of fear of giving birth naturally and often believing that we were conceived in sin. She brings us back to another truth and to the primordial power that women (and men) can experience as their baby is born.
She gives guidance on preparing the way during the pregnancy. On health and diet that is good for both mother and baby and that promotes a birth which is a celebration of life rather than a surgical/ medical event. She brings us back to a 'natural' birth which is a gift to both the parents and the baby being born. She reminds us of natural methods, of patience and of sacred guidance that is ever with us but is especially with women as they give birth.Read more ›
It is full of wisdom, with ideas and exercises of how we can grow spiritually; how we can extend our awareness; how we can be there for each other to all help to birth a new humanity.
A book which can help us all realize what we have been through (during our own birth) and learn to heal and grow past this.
I already have a copy of this book but am ordering more so I can share it with my friends and still have the wisdom contained in it at home. It's also a wonderful gift for friends and parents to be who are looking for more insight into themselves, their world and the world we creat together.

This is not your ordinary pregnancy book. It focuses mainly on the spiritual aspects of pregnancy and labor and delivery. It's written by a midwife and therefore it highly stresses a natural delivery. I think the author is very much in touch with her higher self and she has come to many of the conclusions described in the book through her self-awareness. Therefore this may not be the book for the skeptical scientist who requires scientific proof. However, I am a physician and I found this book very helpful. It encouraged me to have a home birth. As a consequence of my natural deliverymy baby came out very strong and alert.
I highly recommend this book to those who want to focus on the spiritual and energetic aspects of their pregnancy and delivery, and especially to those who are committed to bringing their babies into this world alert and AWARE.
What is challenging, however, is some of the structure - it's set up very much like a term paper with detailed introductions and summaries (that could be edited out for smoothness). As well, much of the typeface is Comic Sans (or comparable) which is tiring for the eyes. A serif font would be much more readable. (You'd think I'm being picky but it really makes a difference when the content makes me want to keep reading but my eyes are too strained to continue.) Perhaps this will be addressed in future reprints?
These are small matters, though, when compared to the value and power of the book's greater intention. Sensitive mothers will feel the truth in the pages and come to a closer connection with the soul of their baby. Readers are given practical and inspiring suggestions for deepening the experience of pregnancy and honouring it as one of the greatest transitions in a woman's (and baby's) life. It is a generous gift to the world and I'm grateful to the author for having written it.
