COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Helped me to prep submitted by annikajoyce on August 27, 2020, 3:51pm I was unable to attend a birthing class while pregnant and this book was extremely helpful in providing knowledge about preparation and the actual event of labor. It has guidelines about writing a birth plan and helpful techniques to practice during labor. My only caution is that it is very blatantly biased in favor of all natural birthing techniques (and opposed to intervention).
