Publisher's Summary

Based on the hit documentary that inspired a vibrant online community, this innovative approach to birthing shows women how to maximize childbirth's emotional and physical rewards.
With more than 4 million babies born in the United States each year, too many women experience birth as nothing more than a routine or painful event. In her much-praised film Orgasmic Birth, acclaimed filmmaker Debra Pascali-Bonaro showed that in fact childbirth is a natural process to be enjoyed and cherished. Now she joins forces with renowned author and activist Elizabeth Davis to offer an enlightening program to help women attain the most empowering and satisfying birth experience possible. While an orgasmic birth can, for some, induce feelings of intense, ecstatic pleasure, it is ultimately about taking control of one's own body and making the most informed decisions to have a safe, memorable, and joyful birth day.
Whether women choose to give birth at home, in a hospital, or in a birthing center, Orgasmic Birth provides all the necessary tools and guidance to design the birth plan that's best for them. Featuring inspiring stories from mothers and their partners and filled with practical advice and solutions, this one-of-a-kind resource is the next frontier of natural, intimate childbirth.

Preparing for first child

Following in my mom/cousins footsteps I want to have a natural-true-to-instinct birth with a midwife (we'll see how it actually goes!). Unfortunately everyone else in my life (friends/colleagues) have gone the root of epidurals, "feeling-less", laying down births lead by ob-gyns so I was after positive birth stories that reflect what I'm after. This book delivered! It paints a beautiful image to aim for and manifest but also covers the reality that birth rarely goes to plan.
It provides reasons and purposes behind each phase of labour, each pain, and how each work together when we don't fight the process. It doesn't promise pain free unrealistic expectations but doesn't help to alter the mindset around the sensations.

Expecting to actually orgasm in birth after reading this? This I find unlikely but an optimistic goal (reach for the stars to land in the clouds right?) nonetheless.

A must-read!

This is the first book that was truly empowering and honoring of what women's bodies are meant to do: bear a child. It challenges our current ideas that medical interventions are the only safe way to give birth. It also shares beautiful, powerful birth stories. His book has shifted me, from being very afraid of giving birth to my first child, to now feeling positive anticipation as to the powerful possibilities that lie ahead with my labor. From every story I heard, a woman is completely and utterly transformed in the journey of birthing. I am amazed to say that I am now looking forward to it, thanks to this book.

Also, the performance was one of the very best on Audible!
