Reading Dr. Read's book started me on the road to reaching that goal. I especially like the inclusion of his autobiography in the second half of the book. To see the evolution of his philosophy of childbirth and his persistence in helping women achieve natural childbirth even though society at the time was anything but supportive. I personally related to his kindness and humility towards women and the tremendous work they accomplish in giving birth and the profoundly spiritual experience it can be for the family.

Childbirth without fear. Although this book is old it is still very much relevant! For anyone looking to learn about labor and how there does not have to be pain involved this is an awesome read. And for me who has had 6 children naturally I can say for certain, childbirth without fear is childbirth without pain. how more. by Intolerable on April 26, 2014. by Grantly Dick-Read.

It was very hard to get through, pretty wordy and kind of outdated. Though I am sure the principles are good, it was a pain to get through. I tried to skim, but just ended up not finishing.

In 1971 when I was pregnant with my first ( of seven) children I went to the same doctor who had delivered all my mother's children. I and my husband had one childbirth education class with him and were basically told not to worry he had everything under control. He even gave all his patients a box full of different colored pills to keep at home and said if I had any problems he would let me know which ones to take. To this day I don't know what they were, but when I went into labor and called for advice he told me to take the yellow one. Long story short is that I blindly followed his directions including having a caudal anesthetic which resulted in a "drugged" baby pulled out with forceps because I couldn't even feel when to push and an episiotomy. For my next baby I wanted to know what was going on and be in charge of my own birth experience. Reading Dr. Read's book started me on the road to reaching that goal. I especially like the inclusion of his autobiography in the second half of the book. To see the evolution of his philosophy of childbirth and his persistence in helping women achieve natural childbirth even though society at the time was anything but supportive. I personally related to his kindness and humility towards women and the tremendous work they accomplish in giving birth and the profoundly spiritual experience it can be for the family. I went on to become a Bradley certified childbirth educator and have my remaining six children naturally. It is unfortunate that this book seems to be out of print, because the principles are timeless and possibly more relevant and needed in this day and age where media distorted views of childbirth have deprived this generation of the beauty and joy found in the natural process (and work) of giving birth.

This book has been around for ages and is often over-looked. I first read it back in the 1960's when I was expecting my first child. I have since given it as a gift to many expectant women, especially those who feared labor and delivery based on experiences they heard from others.

The book touches on every aspect of pregnancy but the section on labor and delivery was what successfully guided me through the process six times, granted with some minor discomfort but without pain or fear.

Many years ago I was expecting my first child and was lucky enough to read "Childbirth Without Fear". I was very curious and a little frightened by the unknown. I read the helpful advice more than once and practiced the breathing exercises. My labor pains stopped, once I got to the Army hospital. I kept asking the nurse, :What will it be like? All she said was, "You'll know". But, I felt nothing until the baby's head crowned. Later, the nurse went yelling down the hall, "It's a miracle."

That is why I buy it for all the future Mom;s I love.
