I borrowed it from the library a few months ago because it looked good but I didn't get a chance to read it. I am a bookworm but since Cadie turned about 7 months old or so reading is rarely sonething I get to do anymore. I miss it so much!!

Let us know what you think! I will probably borrow it again once I get pregnant.

For children grow up, as Iíve learned to my sorrow.
So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep.

I've only read quotes from it explaining the authors philosophy, and to be honest it kind of ticks me off when he says that pain is only a result of fear. Maybe his message has been misrepresented, so I would read it to give it a fair shot. A lot of people in the NCB community love him.

I've read it. My Mom got it for me when I was pregnant with my first son. I honestly loved it. It's what hypnobirthing is based off of--the whole fear-tension-pain cycle. I recommend it.
