Book Review- Essential Homebirth Guide
Jane Drichta and Jodilyn Owen
“Our goal is not to have every mother birth at home—our goal is to encourage parents to gather quality information, to gain exposure to a philosophy that screams trust in mothers and trust in babies, and to provide parents who do plan a homebirth to be well equipped with an understanding of how to thrive in that decision.” – Jane E. Drichta, CPM and Jodilyn Owen, CPM, authors of The Essential Homebirth Guide: For Families Planning or Considering Birthing at Home.
And that is what this book does. I love how the book speaks to mothers about her options, her choices and encourages her to explore and address her needs. I will be adding this book to the Birth Arts International reading list, and I will have a few copies on hand for my client lending library.
The book is readable, absorbable and readily digestible for parents and family members. Thanks for giving women information in a clear, concise voice. The book is full of information for communities, education, preparation, communication stated in a compassionate voice.
