I loved it the first time round, and actually did a childbirth course based on that philosophy. I'm an artsy fartsy girl to begin with though, and I really liked the idea of marking my pregnancy journey with some of the artistic exercises. I still have a clay model of myself birthing that I made during the course, it's actually on my computer desk as I type ...the baby and the arm gor broken off so i've been meaning to bury it in the backyard and let earth reclaim it, but that's a bit off topic.
I think the read is for sure worth it., If you are plannign for a drug free childbirth, you need some concrete techniques to help you through it (as you know form bradley, i would assume) ...the book has lots of ideas for different techniques. I also find that the section on facing your birthing fears is a valuable one, ironically enough, moreso now that I am facing a second...the first time round I wasn't scared...but now I know what I'm in for :LOL
Anyway, I left my copy at the hospital after ds was born, and will be getting another copy early in my pregnancy this time.
