    ...."Ina May's Guide to Childbirth". What a fantastic book! EVERY woman should read it.

    Here's the only problem I have from reading it. I want to go to The Farm to have this baby now!!! I mapquested it and tried to convince DH that 5 hours in labor in a car would be great

    I am pretty sure you have to go and live there for awhile before birth so they develope a relationship with you. I agree it would be an amazing place to give birth. DH has mentioned it before.

    I am currently reading it for my Doula course. There are definitely lots of points that make you stop and think!

    When my baby was still breech, my doula suggested that I could go to The Farm to birth... my DH would never have gone for it...but... man, it was tempting!

    I just started re-reading it during my 3 hour GD test last week. It's such a great book!

    It is a good book. I read it during both of my pregnancies. Have you seen the videos of Ina May on youtube? I showed these 3 to my husband because he's not a reader, but he will watch a video. It's 3 consecutive parts of one speech:

    I got to meet her and hear her speak years ago out in Washington State, what an inspiring lady!

    I just got my copy back from my girlfriend who just had her first baby and been borrowing it ~ Love that book. Every afternoon now while my kids nap I take a long soak in the tub that I plan to birth in, read the book and listen to my labor music So encouraging to read all of those birth stories!

    I know!!!! It is an amazing book and I totally wanted to go to The Farm, too! We were probably about 7-8 hours away at that time. Now it's halfway across the country, and my mw STILL mentioned it! She has been there for a conference. She raved about the food. haha!
