For a nerd as myself, I really enjoyed her insight and you cannot help to be incredibly impressed by the track record for Ina May as a midwife. This book gave me the confidence and empowerment needed to trust in my body's ability to birth naturally. Unfortunately, the vast majority of it was filled with messages of female empowerment and a clear bias against anything having to do with modern medicine.

and reading the whole first section, with all these AMAZING stories of natural childbirth just made me feel like i was a complete and total failure and less than a real woman for never having gone that route.Really helpful for people who fear birth, see it as a scary medical event, or just want to be inspired as to the sacred and spiritual event that birth can be. He was also impressed with the fact that the midwives were emergency medical technicians and very qualified in their work. Her new book, Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth was released 4 March 2003 by Bantam/Dell, a division of Random House. S. While the tone of the book is much too touchy-feely/hippyish for me, I have to admit that it is well worth reading regardless of whether you're planning a natural childbirth or a fully tech'ed out hospital one.

I immediately felt as if a deep-seated prayer had been answered and prayed that if The Farm was right for me I'd end up there. The biggest came during the sixth month of pregnancy, when I was sent a certified letter that made no sense whatsoever, unless one read it do it my way or else. This book is one of the most frequently recommended resources I’ve seen mentioned to mothers who are considering a natural childbirth. In the case of Ina May, I'm a little embarrassed that the whole thing kind of makes my blood run cold.Ina May, while informative and practical, describes giving birth as something delightful, hilarious, and super-power-esque to look forward to. For example, Rhogham does not have any mercury whatsoever any more, and the danger from amniocentesis is vastly overstated. Ina May's Guide to Natural Childbirth takes the fear out of childbirth by restoring women's faith in their own natural power to give birth with more ease, less pain, and less medical intervention. They were all so different from the birth stories you normally hear, and it made me happy to know that natural childbirth really can be an extremely positive experience. The birth stories in this book, and Gaskin's explanations of the process, gave me a total confidence in my ability to do this crazy-sounding thing.

Habe mir das Buch zur Geburtsvorbereitung gekauft, und bin absolut überzeugt, dass mir die Worte zu einer einfacheren Geburt verholfen haben.I came out of the bathroom and did what I had to do, whether it was squat, bend over, walk around, say, "Oh, my God," or dance like a whooping crane.
