A really good first pass book for first time mothers, or mothers looking for a wholly different birth to their earlier ones. There's a lot of information to use as a jumping off point to further your research into natural birthing methods, or at least being well informed on the medical decisions you may need to make.
This book is a must read for pregnant women who want to experience an empowered birth, where at the end of her journey she says "I am so happy I had the opportunity to create this beautiful labour where I was respected, supported 100%, honoured and loved" this is the true meaning of empowered birth.
Cannot recommend this book highly enough.
This is an excellent book that's not just for Australian moms, there's lots in there for anyone considering parenthood or even for second time parents.
