Midwives - review


Ok. So I TRIED this book. I thought I would like it since my SIL, Kami recommended it, but I didn't take into consideration the amount of description there would be about the birthing process. I am deathly afraid of medical things, especially birth. I have given birth and I really don't want to repeat it, but I will because I love kids, but......this book was WAY to descriptive. I really didn't make it far because I cringed after almost every sentence. I know, I have issues, I am not denying it. This will have to be a time where one of you has read it and can review it for me.

Erin and I both are a little slow this month because we have been on vacation and have been super busy, so please forgive us. August is always a crazy month.

I liked it. It took awhile but I really enjoyed it.

I'd definitely give it another try. It's really good and it's not all birth/labor blood and guts. :)

Maybe skim that part?

Kelly, Maybe I will try to skip and get to the court case part of it and see how it goes. Seriously though they better not talk about it alot in court.

I think they talk about it (because the whole thing is centered around one particular delivery) but I don't remember it being really graphic after the beginning part.

I haven't read it in a long time, though.

I need to finish this sometime. It got lost in the shuffle of the vacation and now I'm totally into the August 15th book. I'll finish Midwives eventually (I've only started it about 5 times now!)
