“My husband and I are expecting our third baby and have read just about every pregnancy book on the market. This is our favorite for several reasons. First, it emphasizes the spiritual aspect of birth. For a woman to partner with God for that one little creation moment is so spectacular, yet we tend to think of it as more of a medical condition. Having myself refocused on that created such a fantastic birth for my son. My husband liked this book the best because it gave such specific ways for the husband to help, rather than just saying “Be supportive.” He liked the way the book said “If this doesn’t work, try this, etc. If nothing works, sit down next to her and pray for her.” It made him feel much less helpless when I was uncomfortable. This was hands down the most practical, easy to use book I have read on labor. It will go to the hospital with me for the third time!” – Amazon.com
