Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references and index. --- Review, April 2003: At first glance, this book seems to written exclusively for expecting women, providing a great deal of "how to" information and explaining what midwifery is all about. It combines factual guidance as well as beautiful birth stories, all seen through the eyes of the labouring women, the parent in the first days postpartum or the mother invited to support another women in labour. And yet, the authors of this book, midwifery activist who want to share the inspiration they found in their birth processes, also give the reader a view of Canadian midwifery at this moment in history. They recount that not only has the demand for more family-centered, holistic birth services grown, midwifery is also seen as the answer to the predictions of a shortage of obstetric care providers in the next few decades.
