Highly Recommend

I found this book very helpful as I prepared for labor and birth. It provided a lot of different techniques and ways to stay present during the experience. I especially found the chapter in fear and specifically fear of pain to be especially useful. I have studied Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and the author skillfully transferred concepts nicely to apply them to the birth experience.
