Book worms

...I'm currently reading and really enjoying Ina May's book, it is empowering and inspirational. I like how she never discredits modern medicine, but puts the strength of the female body and of the mind as the most important tools for a natural and beautiful childbirth. The women in her book share their stories and write of delivering their babies as a life-altering experience and not as something painful and unpleasant they just wanted to get over and done with.

Be careful with this book. My sister said it's not good for first time moms because it sets women up to believe that birth is easy and euphoric when it's actually really difficult and painful and if we go into it thinking it's easy it could set us up for failure.
