  1. PUSHED was INCREDIBLE. So incredible that we’re (Birth Matters Virginia) bringing Ms. Block to our area on March 17th. It made me sick at times, but gives me hope that we can turn around our maternity system, too.

  2. Our mutual friend GC enlightened me about your blog existence. You should add “Birthing from within” to your reading list as it has a few really good chapters with exercises on overcoming birthing fears – including both fears from previous births or fears from inexperience. There’s also a chapter for dad to read.

  3. You might like the book “Birth- The surprising history of how we are born” by Tina Cassidy. It was really interesting to learn about how birthing has changed through the years.

  4. This is a great list! Very powerful. A lot of women just read a little Ina May and feel good about that, but I really think there are so many strong voices out there (like Wagner, Odent, etc.) that should be heard.

    • I’ve actually NOT read any Gaskin. I guess it’s because of her restrictions on birth at the Farm – frustrates me. Hey thanks for swinging by my blog!
