The book "Unassisted Birth" by laura Shanley is great! I had to put the other Unassisted Birth book down, because I felt it was too "us vs them"... as though those who chose to home birth were somehow superior to those who chose hospital birth. A tricky line to truly buy into... I kept thinking of the black and white divide that governments create to create an us vs them mentality that starts all sorts of wars and ugly historical (and present day) happenings.
This book, however, is not like that at all. It's based mostly on research from other books and studies. There is a whole section based on visualization, and trust and comfort in our own bodies and wisdom. She quotes a lot of Seth books, which I've heard of through the years, but never picked up. Well, I'm ordering some of them today! I think they will help with both pregnancy and birth, but in all other facets of life, as well.
Aren't books SWELL!?!?
