“Not since Ina May Gaskin’s Spiritual Midwifery book of the 1970’s have I read such a thorough, intimate and inspiring guide to natural childbirth. From preconception through postpartum, Kat’s deep understanding of a woman’s needs and her family’s needs will help you navigate in ways both large and small, an authentic and joyous birth.”
—Beth Nelson, author of Postcards from the Basque Country
“As Kat’s doula I had the unique privilege of watching her apply the profound wisdom in these pages as she gave birth to her daughter. I am continually inspired by Kat’s knowledge and dedication to health and wellbeing. Her unique perspective as a writer emphasizes the value of trusting ourselves and the new life before us.”
