For the mom who wants to take charge of her birth
Reading this book made me feel angry about how women in childbirth are treated in the United States. It also empowered me to make certain decisions for myself and share information with others interested in taking charge of their births. If you're a mom who's happy to turn over your pregnant body and baby to someone else, I wouldn't read it because its tone can seem a bit radical at times. I would suggest this book to any woman who expresses interest in more gentle options, or birth the way it ought to be. I'm happy to say I took charge of my own birth a year after reading this book. I brought a beautiful child into the world at home, attended by my family and midwife, and in water. Thanks, Barbara Harper!
