Reviews

Anne Lamott author of Operating Instructions Baby Catcher is a celebration of life, a book of beautiful and passionate stories of birth -- and the mothers, fathers, families, and friends who assisted -- told by a midwife devoted to more tender and natural childbirth. This is an inspiring, important book.
