Has anyone read this? It's a quick read - I finished it in probably an hour or so last night. Intense! I can't say the suggestions for a more peaceful birth are news to me (dimmed lights, quiet, delayed cord clamping, etc), but his interpretation of gestation and birth from a baby's POV was astounding. Probably was 100x more so when the book was written in the 70s. Makes me more determined to not give into an Epi, if nothing else because I'd hate for that to lead to a need for Pitocin, which I know would be very distressing on the little one. A very interesting little book.
