Simply now a piece of my heart
Oh what a great book. Especially great to read just 2 days before my due date for baby #3 (this baby that is telling me that it will probably be born unassisted so I better get myself mentally prepared.. I'm listening to you body).
All these fabulous intense real raw births. Some hilarious. Some so deeply moving. I read the whole book in 1 day and I feel surprised that I'm not personally also in labor because I now feel like I've just been right there experiencing 30 live beautiful births. I just love the parts where a couple of the moms are worried by the silence of the new baby right at those first seconds of life just after this loud exhilarating excruciating birth the mom just went through... And the baby is silent because it was SLEEPING! So precious.
I loved so much that these were mostly unassisted unattended births since it really showed what comes out of a woman when the decisions for things are kept for herself and none of it was handed off to any kind of staff. and it was just so right. The mother becomes the queen as she is doing all of this from deep within.
It is such a beautiful raw book. I loved every minute of it and kept dreading coming to the end. I wanted it to never end. Thank you for this wonderful book. I hope the stories become a part of me to calm me and support me as I go through this birth and become the queen that i have in me too. Instinct and intuition. Birth is Love.
