    As I was developing a workshop on using movement and different positioning in labor I was excited to come across this book! As a doula and childbirth educator, I often find myself trying to explain a position and wondering if they really understand what I was trying to get across. Now, with this great book and its many photos, I plan on using this as a visual reference so everyone is on the same page. I think this will be a great resource that I will go back to time and time again.

    As a labor doula, this is a great reference book of positions that will help during labor, epidural use, narcotic use and while pushing. The pictures are a great example of how to do each position and prove that an actual pregnant woman can do them. The doula/birth support in the picture is not a large woman which also proves you do not have to be big and strong to help a woman in labor. I would recommend this book as a reference for pregnant women, dads as well as doulas and other birth professionals!

    I just recently gave birth to my first child and wanted a no- or low-intervention birth because I know that outcomes for moms and babies tend to be less favorable as interventions stack up. I aimed to be healthy and active through pregnancy and likewise wanted a healthy and active birth experience. Birth Movement helped me to prepare intellectually and physically for birth by showing me the many ways I could labor and push - I knew I would likely not want to be flat on my back but didn't really know before the book exactly HOW I could position myself. I even assumed the squat bar was unusable until I saw the setup in the book! I was fortunate enough to work with Jun-Nicole (the author) during my labor and found that I needed several different positions at different times, and that my body really had to guide me in the moment. The book helped me to be prepared and confident in knowing that there were many options I could choose from depending on what I was feeling at any given time. I... More > personally used sifting on the back, belly lifts, side-lying, upright resting, and the squat bar with sling, among others - when pushing was at its most intense I was very thankful for the knowledge in this book and how it helped me feel prepared! I strongly recommend this book to any pregnant woman desiring an active birth where she is empowered and able to find her best position for her body. I'd also recommend any mom-to-be to encourage her support team to get and study the book - this would include her partner, doctor or midwife, doula, attending family member, hospital nurses, or even people who surround and support her care, such as a chiropractor. I believe this book will help empower women during one of the most powerful experiences of her life!< Less
