Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
* You have a lot more choices and control over your birth experience than you may know. Better Birth - The Ultimate Guide to Childbirth from Home Births to Hospitals, by Denise Spatafora is really the perfect guide for any woman who wants to be empowered by this important event. Whether you plan on giving birth at home or in the hospital, your birth can, and should, be exactly what you envision it to be. Denise strives to take the fear out of the progression of labor and delivery by providing real knowledge, support and advice on all levels. You will learn natural relaxation methods and the all important mind-body connection when preparing for birth. From water birth to C-sections, you’re sure to feel much more informed after reading through this motivating book. I especially enjoyed the section on “Prenatal Yoga” complete with photos of the poses…with actual pregnant women. And, I also found the section on “Addressing Your Birth Plan” extremely helpful, as it lists key questions you should be considering before you have your baby. But, this only scratches the surface on what’s covered. I recommend that you visit Denise’s site, BetterBirthBook.com, to learn more and/or pick up a copy of her book. You won’t be sorry, you'll be empowered! (DivineCaroline.com, May 11, 2009)
