Yarn Along: Ina May

My sister Juliana started reading Ina May's Guide to Childbirth after I asked her to be with me when I have the baby.  She showed it to me when Anna and I visited her in Albany.  We read various birth stories aloud from it, and I was struck by how empowering and beautiful many of them were.  I didn't want to wait until she finished it to read it myself, so I requested it through interlibrary loan.  I have so enjoyed each description of birth.  I snatch moments to read them throughout the day, just as I add a few stitches here and there to my kicking bag.

Loved that book! I read it with my last two babies, and kept it on my bedside.
