Excellent book and one every pregnant lady (or midwife or other interested parties) should read. It has helped me to enjoy being a woman more and also being pregnant more. It has helped me to not be so scared of labor, birth, and delivery. Instead, I can face it (I am coming up on my third labor here in August) with God-given strength and happiness. A word of caution, I did find it a bit too "mystic minded" at times, but one need not toss the baby with the bath water. There is plenty of good and amazing information in this book to use and apply. Christian women, as much as any other sect of women, need to reclaim their minds & bodies from the overly influential medical system that claims we (women) can't do what God has designed our bodies to do and therefore need additional help (drugs, etc.). I believe that we can do it and we should do it as God intended it (i.e. natural childbirth).
