What people are saying about "A Gentle Start":
This is such a gift! I loved it! :) I learned a lot from it and I know it will be so beneficial for new mamas! There are so many people that don't know that much about natural pregnancy, nutrition & home birth and this is an incredible resource. There is so much information from the water/lotus birth, to unassisted birth, to the burping, to the swaddling, to the supplements...it is packed with practical and simple wisdom! :) ~ Alexandra Jaye Johnson - www.entheos.me
I think the way you write and connect is sooo different. It's like you're in the room talking to you. It's really gentle and I think the "everyday" woman would be more receptive to the ideas and choices in it because of that :) Such a different energy to most Baby/Parenting Guides, so refreshing! ~ Donna Marie Watson - www.facebook.com/MotheringLife
I really like your book. It is a very genuinely written account of your experience. The honesty comes through in the things that might not normally be talked about in the more visceral and personal challenges of pregnancy/birth. For me this is the most useful in reading other women's testimonies - how to face the challenges, keep faith, and rise above. You are able to cover a wide variety of topics in a concise way, which I think will be helpful for a lot of people. All the main points are introduced and then you follow up with a super helpful list of further reading and extra resources. Personally I appreciate the concluding lists of useful/not so useful baby products. I have spent lots of time browsing through them all only to close the website later on because there are so many choices. I've even googled something to the effect of 'green baby products best list' :) ~ JS
