"Both useful and beautiful…"
What I love the most about this book is all the different perspectives. We have a collection of personal stories and photographs, mainly - inevitably - of births that take place at home. There are births in water, breech births, twins and a caesarean; and the stories are told both by midwife Becky Reed and by the mother, and then in several cases also by the partner, a sibling, and even a grandmother. It gives such a fascinating, colourful, and relentlessly positive picture of birth, in all its amazing variety.
