Reviews - What do our customers think?
essential reading to prepare for childbirth  May 22, 2008
(written by Charles' wife)I just had my 4th baby. Before each birth, I prepared myself by reviewing the birth and post-partum chapters. This is essential reading for those who hope to have a natural birth yet want to be informed about about possible interventions. The book doesn't have much on pregnancy, but that part takes care of itself. Prepare yourself for the challege and reward of a drug-free labor with this book.
A Classic  Apr 15, 2008
Penny Simkin has the talent to share her passion for supporting mothers with research based information in a very clear language.
Every pregnant couple needs this book.
Ana Paula Markel
Excellent resource...  Jan 25, 2008
...from the day you get that positive test until the weeks after bringing your perfect little bundle home.

I had the most wonderful opportunity to take my childbirth education classes from Penny Simkin herself. She gave us this book, as well as "The Birth Partner," as reading materials for her class. I don't know where I would be without this. All through my pregnancy, labor, and the weeks following, I had this book by my side. It answered any possible question I could think of, and when it came down to a c-section, I was able to try to calm myself by thinking back to what I read in this book. I can't believe they were able to fit so much into so few of pages!

Great pictures and illustrations, wonderful information, and a must have for any newly pregnant mom. I would have been lost without it!
THE Pregnancy book  Dec 30, 2007
After starting "what to expect" and being told that it was horrible I was given this book by my midwives. It is THE book every pregnant woman should read. It does cover pregancy but not all the scare tactics that you read in the other books that make you paranoid about breathing. I found it very helpful in creating a birthing plan and knowing all the options I had. I didn't have the pregnancy I thought I would have as my sons were born prematurely and didn't survive, when it happened I knew exactly what was going on. On the other hand in "what to expect" the chart that says abdominal discomfort, you may have gas or you may be going into pre-term labor. Give me a break! So again...pregnant, thinking of being pregnant, know someone who is pregnant, this is the book!
Most helpful book, and I have them all!!  Dec 20, 2007
The only one I needed. I could start my own library with all of the pregnancy, childbirth, and newborn baby book I bought. This is the only one I'll keep.
