Editorial Reviews

Positive News 2001 Magazine
'At this summer's Breath of Life conference, pioneer of natural birth, Michel Odent posed the question, "Can humanity survive obstetrics?" The answer to this question is an unequivocal 'yes' with the help of tools such as the Common Knowledge Trust's Pink Kit. Knowledge is power and nowhere more so than in the experience of childbirth. Knowledge of our body is perhaps one of the most valuable tools we can take into our experience of childbirth'.
Midirs 2002 UK
'This is what your mother never told you about birth (more’s the pity). The producers of this ‘multi media birth preparation kit’ want to make the information it contains ‘common knowledge’ and to give pregnant women, their partners and support people familiarity with their bodies and the birth process and a ‘toolkit’ of practical exercises to turn ‘textbook knowledge’ into ‘self-knowledge’.
Dr. Sarah Buckley
The information … the ‘common knowledge’… that women can gain from this kit is revolutionary. Through simple and accessible instructions, we can learn about our won specific anatomy and how to work with it to enhance the natural processes of labour and birth. Our partners can also be involved, doing exercise with us and learning how to assist and encourage us. The Pink Kit also teaches us to tune into our bodies, using massage, touch and directed breath for example.
National Childbirth Trust (NCT) Tutor Personal Rev Midwife
I liked the whole philosophy of the book-- raising self awareness and developing confidence and empowering women and provided such a gentle, relaxed approach to labor and birth so different from the many media images that are fed to people almost daily. I would like to see these aspects of labor widely discussed by practicing midwives and those in training too and for incorporation into antenatal classes and used in labor.'
Mandy Pagan RCpN,BN
'I have been inspired and compelled to share the knowledge of the Pink Kit that I have personally used in preparation for the birth of my second baby.The Pink Kit has taught me that childbirth is a learned skill and by knowing and understanding our body we can take control and progress the birth of our baby.
