This is a wonderful resource for expectant parents that will leave women and their partners educated, empowered and able to trust themselves and their choices throughout the birthing process.

What I'd like to know is where was Denise Spatafora 25 years ago when I was having my kids? This book is wonderful. It walks you through everything! It helps you prepare yourself emotionally for what is going to happen so you know step by step how labor will progress. Denise gives you ideas for things to do if you find out your baby is in the breech position. This book is chock full of wonderful insights and information that you need to make informed decisions at every step of your child's birth.
This book helps you maintain control of what is happening and what is going to happen to you, your body and your baby. Reading this book will help you understand your options about different types of delivery, about relaxation techniques and how they benefit you and your child. Denise also discusses communicating with your baby in the first hours and days after birth. Quite simply she has thought of everything! I'm not sure there is anything more comprehensive, and yet easily understood out there.
