This book does not seem to know if it wants to be a well-researched book, or a spiritual guide.

The list of references at the end of each chapter is long, and yet at times the author refers to colours surrounding the birth of her baby, and her baby choosing to release its cord.

This holds true particularly for the first two sections of the book. The third (last) section of the book felt much easier to read..perhaps this reflects my own level of 'out-there-ness'. I really found this book to be ‘way out there’ even for a homebirthing-cosleeping-breastfeeding-clothnappying mother-to-be. ( )
