    If you want inspiration to have a successful mindset while in labor and delivering - THIS IS THE BOOK YOU NEED TO READ! The stories are touching and Ina May is caring. Jul 28, 2020

  • Awesome book! Got me through my first labor. Apr 14, 2020

    This book set me up with some seriously unrealistic expectations about labor. Orgasm?? On one hand it eased my mind, but on the other hand it did not properly prepare me. At all. Feb 21, 2020

  • So often we hear horrific birth stories so it was nice to read lovely and positive birth stories to ease my fears a bit. Dec 09, 2019

  • I found the breathing techniques and the state-of-mind of labor discussed in this book to be helpful when prepping for what I hoped would be a natural hospital birth. Nov 20, 2019

  • I read this while pregnant with my first and I felt like it really helped with my expectations on labor. Oct 01, 2019

  • I LOVE Ina May’s view of childbirth. Reading this book erased my fear of the birthing experience! I was empowered, knowing my body was created for this! I recommend even if you’re getting an epidural. Sep 17, 2019

  • Excellent, empowering book for anyone hoping for a natural childbirth experience. Some of the book was overly “crunchy” for me, but I was able to use many concepts for unmedicated hospital birth. Aug 28, 2019

  • After taking the Bradley Method Classes, this came highly recommended. This book was inspirational, calming, and helped me feel prepared for birth. Great read for mothers-to-be. Jun 24, 2019

  • I have loved this book throughout my entire pregnancy! As someone who had no idea what I was getting into, the first part of this book gave me hope & inspiration to carry through with the birth I want Jun 07, 2019

  • I seriously love this book! It has empowered me to feel strong and ready to give birth. Apr 09, 2019

  • Seriously a fantastic read for anyone thinking about a natural birth. And it sounds absurd, but the “horse lips” technique is seriously awesome during labor. Apr 03, 2019

  • Great book for birthing parents. I recommend this to my doula client regularly. Mar 29, 2019

  • I loved reading this book before having my first. We had her at home and more than any other book it provided me with the insight I needed to move forward without fear of what I was created to do! Mar 20, 2019

  • I love Ina May! Great book if you're planning a natural birth. Mar 08, 2019

  • This book made me feel so empowered and strong. It was so honest and full of great facts. Feb 06, 2019

  • Loved, loved, loved this book. It was very insightful and it really helped me prepare and get in the mind set of what to expect. I loved that they even shared stories of real people. Jan 31, 2019

  • This book gave me the confidence to go for a non-medicated birth. Read it while pregnant with my first and reading it again as I prepare for the birth of my second. Jan 25, 2019

    Great book. Only complaint...things they say are so important to avoid in the hospital were no longer policies at our hospital...a little outdated? Also skipped a lot of the stories at beginning. Jan 04, 2019
