Review

PRAISE for THE BIRTH PARTNER
 
“Penny Simkin shows how giving support in childbirth is not only a matter of helping a woman through labor and delivery—important though that is—but also of enabling her to cherish a meaningful memory of birth.” – Sheila Kitzinger, author of Rediscovering Birth and The Complete Book of Pregnancy and Childbirth
 
“A clearly written book that describes what really happens in our maternity units. I recommend it highly for both parents and a supportive friend.” – Marshall Klaus, M.D., author of Bonding, Your Amazing Newborn and Mothering the Mother
