Transcribed from Birth ‘n Babies Magazine:
A Natural Empowering Birth Review
“I am thrilled to see a book that encourages women to take birth back. That is our only hope. We can’t wait for the culture of fear to subside. We women have to address fear with truth: Birth is a natural function of biology. Birth is inherently safe and interference is inherently risky. The culture of fear that separates women from their biology also robs them of their power. Thank you for making women’s power and truth the theme of your book. I know that many women will have better births because of this empowering book!”

About the Author
Why inspiring birth stories, you may ask? Good question! Like most modern women, I was filled with fear and anxiety, as well as positive anticipation as a first-time mother-to-be.
Yet I was committed to going natural all the way and consciously worked through my fears during my nine months in waiting and transformed my experience from being terrified of the birth process to feeling at peace, having complete trust in birth and my body and actually looking forward to the big event!
The result? Two incredibly life changing, fear-free, drug- free and virtually pain- free births to my beautiful girls!!! It also gave me a sense of inner strength, courage and confidence like I could take on the world. Giving birth as nature intended is one of my greatest achievements by far and I will carry this feeling with me for the rest of my life.
