I stumbled across two reviews of my book today! Yay!
One is here at projectmommybrain. She JUST reviewed another book called Momma Zen that sounds great and I am ordering from my independent local bookstore Nicola’s.
where she, amazingly!, devotes four posts to reviewing specific sections of the book. Wow!
I admit that it feels wonderful to read positive reviews of the book that I spent so many years working on. I think I am especially happy to find these amazing words by women I do not know because I received my first pretty bad review at amazon a few weeks ago. I knew it would happen eventually — and I also know that the birth world is full of strong opinions because we are all such unique strong mamas! — but understanding that intellectually and facing my first bad review in reality are two different things. I remain grateful and excited about all the mothers, fathers, doulas, midwives, doctors, and childbirth educators who are expanding the circle of natural birth every day, everywhere.
