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.
