What Others Say About the Book

“I am thrilled to see a book that encourages women to take birth back. That is our only hope. We can’t wait for the culture of fear to subside. We women have to address fear with truth: Birth is a natural function of biology. Birth is inherently safe and interference is inherently risky. The culture of fear that separates women from their biology also robs them of their power. Thank you for making women’s power and truth the theme of your book. I know that many women will have better births because of this empowering book!”

~ Carla Hartley, Founder of Trust Birth Initiative and Director of the Ancient Art Midwifery Institute

“One of the best things you can do to prepare for birth is to saturate yourself in positive birth stories”

~ Dr Sarah Buckley MD, Author of Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering.

“Reading it is very much like being surrounded by wise women teaching the lessons of birth we wish we all had received as young women. ... a great blessing to those women who go seeking for birth wisdom.” 

~ Jenne Erigo Alderks, Board member and Grassroots Advocates Co-Chair of the Coalition for Improving Maternity Services

“I loved reading A Modern Woman’s Guide to a Natural Empowering Birth.... We really need get back to a place where women trust birth, trust the process and above all else, trust themselves and their ability to birth their babies and your book will encourage readers to do just that.I think you are onto something powerful here.... Love it!”

~ Simone Snyder CMT, CD, ICCE, International Childbirth Education Association (ICEA)
