hertsandessex, I'm soooo sorry I missed your name of my list, I knew I had but I couldn't remember your name! I was thinking of Southeastastra but I knew it was wrong, Mars and hertsandessex, would you be so kind as to hop over to my thread about Ina May's spiritual midwifery 'doula bible' and Jofeb04, sorry didn't realise you were a doula too, please feel free to come and discuss doula books with us!!! Thankyou ladies, hijack over.
I'm reading Sheila Kitzinger "The New Experience of Childbirth" at the moment and really struggling to finish it! The last book I read I couldn't put down.
I get through the interesting bits quite quickly and loved the first section, then there's all the negativity that I don't understand why it's written in the way it is. I understand a lot of women have issues with pregnancy but there does seem to be more written about that in one section then the positive happy pregnancy experiences.
Then I got to the relaxation section and fell asleep after a page each time (Sleep deprivation of a teething toddler!)
I was surprised as I loved her intro to Michel Odent in Birth Reborn but finding this such a hard read. I won't pass full judgement until I finish it but it could be sometime pmsl!
