Slow but Good information

Would you listen to Mindful Birthing again? Why?

I found this really helpful with information and techniques to prepare me for natural birthing.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

It is a book about being calm, listening versus reading, sometimes I'd find myself zoning out and having to rewind. This is something you need to read without being distracted.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Breathing and focusing on what is. Nothing more nothing less.

Any additional comments?

I'd definitely recommend this to expectant mothers. :-)
