PRAISE for ACTIVE BIRTH ""Active Birth" will inspire and instruct those who want to give birth through their own efforts by following their own instincts." - Penny Simkin, author of" Pregnancy, Childbirth, and the Newborn " "An empowering approach to labor and birth." - Barbara Katz Rothman, author of "In Labor "and "Recreating Motherhood " "Clearly written, carefully documented, and copiously illustrated, this new edition celebrates the inherent wisdom of women's birthing instincts. It also serves up a complete course of preparation to guide those of us who need to be reminded just how natural childbirth can be." - Adrienne B. Lieberman, author of "Giving Birth" and "Easing Labor Pain" "This book strips away the false complexity of modern obstetrics. Read this book. Claim its wisdom." - Robert Scaer, co-author of "A Good Birth, A Safe Birth" "Janet Balaskas captures the psychological essence of giving birth and the spirit of active participation so important to a woman's self-esteem during pregnancy and delivery." - Gayle Peterson, Ph.D., author of "Birthing Normally "and "An Easier Childbirth"
