Description: Ina May Gaskins is one of the leading midwives in the country, having been in practice for more than 30 years. Ina May begins her book with page after page of birth stories from women that delivered at "The Farm," her birthing community. No two stories are alike, but they are all woven with a common thread: Each mother thoroughly enjoyed her birth.

Review: I was given this book by a family member. In my family, we all get more than our share of advice from the moment we see the plus sign in the EPT test window. Some of the advice is worthwhile, some is priceless, some is laughable. But the recommendation of this book by Ina May Gaskins is one of the gems. 

The second half of the book forever changed my views of labor and delivery.

Ina May explains how each step of the process works and what you can do (or not do) to work with your body, rather than against it. 
This is not a book exclusive to those planning a home birth, either. There are birth stories that are located in hospitals and birthing centers. Ina May's wisdom is applicable to any and all birth settings. 

After reading this book (in each trimester!), passing it around to pregnant friends and highlighting important parts for my husband to read, I felt as prepared as one can be for the birth of my child.
