Truly Life Changing

The Gift of Giving Life Review of the Week

If possible I would give this 10 stars- as a 4th time mom and an avid reader I have read several dozen pregnancy books. This one by far takes the cake!

I’m honestly moved to tears at the blessings and confidence this book has given me as a women.

At just over 500 pages I completed this book in a months time (with 3 little ones at my side) the format is easy for the busy mom because they are short essays or stories that build on each other. Literally 10 mins of reading this a day would be sufficient if you don’t have tons of “free time”.

This is actually a book I plan to give at baby showers from now on.

-Life Changing!

This book was a prayer answered!

The Gift of Giving Life Review of the Week

When I got pregnant with my first baby, I read SO MANY pregnancy books, but none of them fit the book I was dreaming about.

Then I prayed. Who prays about a pregnancy book??? I was then led to this book. It was THE ONLY pregnancy book sold at Deseret Book. It has changed my life forever!

I try to give a copy to every pregnant girl or mom I know.

But in all reality this book is an amazing book for ALL women, whether you are struggling with infertility, have children of your own, expecting your first, have lost a child, or are a grandma!

I’m so excited to keep passing this book on!

I’ve bought two copies of this book. One for myself and one to lend.

We just welcomed a great grand child, so one might wonder why I would find this book so interesting as to have a copy for myself. I have learned many wonderful and strengthening things for women of all ages.

The Gift of Giving Life Review of the Week

One of my FAVORITE books I read during pregnancy to prepare! I highly highly recommend it to ANYONE in childbearing years! H

elped me feel much more confident, positive and informed going into motherhood. I also loved how it refocused me on the spiritual side of birth and helped me get rid of a lot of selfish anxieties.

Very very good book!

Beautiful Book – I feel more prepared to have my third baby

February 13, 2018 in Birth Stories, Book, Book reviews

The Gift of Giving Life Review of the Week

This book has shined a new light on the pregnancy, labor, delivery, and the post-partum stages of creating a child. I feel much more mentally prepared to have my third baby.

The insights and experiences shared in this book have given me a new sense of faith that everything will work out and that I shouldn’t fear the actual having of a baby.

The Gift of Giving Life Review of the Week

I have been reading “The Gift of Giving Life” and I’m stuck on the Mother’s Blessing chapter! I want to keep reading it over and over again. I actually cry from the beauty of it. (no I’m not pregnant lol) I wish with all my heart this was more prevalent in our society.

To all the authors of this book- Thank you!! Such an inspiring and scared work!

Relevant for ALL mothers, and women, not just those of Latter-Day Saints belief.

Birth is physiological and physical and emotional and spiritual! I’m so glad there’s such a wonderfully written book that hits on all those elements.

I would give this book to all my friends, if I could. It may even be my staple pregnancy gift from here on out.

The Gift of Giving Life Review of the Week

I am in the middle of this book and I adore it. As a Christian, LDS woman this book has really increased my testimony of the power of woman and the blessing AND opportunity of child birth.

Seriously loving this book. I would even recommend this book to women who are struggling with infertility and wondering how heavenly father has children in the plan for them.

Allows its readers to figure out the path that works best for them without judging

January 16, 2018 in Birth Stories, Book, Book reviews

The Gift of Giving Life Review of the Week

I love this book. I actually read this two years ago, but forgot to review it at the time. When I first read it, I was pregnant with my 4th child and desperately trying to figure out how to finally get the birth I wanted. I’d had an emergency c-section, an accidental home birth (assisted by EMTs), and a natural hospital birth, but most had left me feeling bullied (and occasionally assaulted) by the doctors and nurses involved, and I was dreading having to go through that again.

The entire book is full of worthwhile essays, but at the time, it was the essay “Unity with Your Care Provider” that really hit home to me and made me realize how important it was that I have a doctor who listened to me and respected my wishes and worked WITH me instead of against me. Since with my current health care that was impossible (23 doctors rotate at the hospital, so the odds of having one deliver my baby who I’d even met were slim to none), I chose to find a midwife and have a (planned!) home birth instead. And it was by FAR my best birthing experience yet.

Now I’m getting ready to have Baby #5, and I decided it would be worthwhile to read this book again. This time around, I’m really struck by the wonderful variety of topics they cover– this is not a book with an agenda. They aren’t pushing home birth or hospital birth or any particular medical procedure. They are pushing for women to find the spiritual within the birthing process and to figure out how to make it work best of them.

And I love that. Because I think that’s exactly how it should be. In the same way that I would never tell a friend who needed glasses that because I have 20/20 vision, she should “trust her body” and not use her glasses, I think it can sometimes be ridiculous how often women expect their friends to labor and give birth in the same way that worked for her. I feel like this book allows its readers to figure out the path that works best for them without judging, but instead tries to give as many options as possible so that each woman can fully consider them all.
