Posts Tagged ‘book review’

Every so often I stumble across or someone forwards me a review of the book that is out there in cyber-land that I’ve never seen. It’s such a strange feeling, still, to know that real people read the book, have opinions about it, but I never get to meet them. It feels like this large family of like-minded birth geeks out there.

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.

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.
