I really enjoyed the art therapy exercises in this book. I'm not an artist at all, but this really helped me process my thoughts and fears about labor and motherhood in a way that I just couldn't do by verbal means (such as journaling). A very helpful book!

Although I skipped many of the activities, i found the book to be a wonderful resource in building my self confidence and helping me to get in touch with my fears about natural childbirth. I dont usual purchase books but i ended up buying it at half price books so i could reference it throughout my pregnancy.
