Item description for On Becoming Birthwise: Understanding Birth by Design by Anne Marie Ezzo, Sharon Nelson & Diane Dirks...

Overview
Bearing down with tremendous effort, she works at pushing the waiting life out of her body. Her husband wipes her beaded brow and gives her a supportive word, and she continues her courageous work. Finally, a hairy scalp emerges. Forehead, eyes, nose, mouth, and chin follow, and the parents get their first glimpse of the little person they have dreamed about for months. With blinking eyes and puckered lips, the passenger completes the journey. As the baby slides into the waiting hands of the birth attendant, a new citizen is announced. It's a girl! The baby's first breath is the culmination of a perfectly timed, physiologically detailed plan. For nine months she has depended on her mother for survival, as the intricate workings of the placenta sustained her life. Now changes occur to ensure her independent survival. For the first time her heart pumps blood into her lungs, and the designated vessels close to complete the self-contained breathing process.

Reviews - What do customers think about On Becoming Birthwise (On Becoming. . .)?

I'm a Christian, and I've read Ezzo's books  Dec 5, 2005
..Or as much as I can stomach of each of them. To Christian mamas out there, please research the author and the lack of support (renouncement) out there from the Christian community (esp the author's former church and Focus On The Famliy). Ezzo's advice is NOT the only Biblical way to birth/raise a child (in fact, I don't find it biblical at all in my research in the Word). He knows nothing about attachment parenting (for info on that from a Christian perspective that is not renounced by the Christian community, read books by Dr. Sears). I also would recommend that you visit ezzo.info before buying this book.
 
Thanks for the advice!  Jan 23, 2005
Hi, as an expectant first time mother trying to get ready and get informed for the care of my little one, I am very glad I looked at your reviews and the Ezzo website! This book was recommended to me by a friend and I was all set to buy and follow it so I really thank you for the alert.

Read the books before you make judgments  Nov 18, 2004
I just wanted to state that Ezzo DOES NOT say to not feed your child. People posting against the Ezzos should make sure they READ the books before criticizing them.
 
Ezzo really needs to get with it or get out.  Mar 22, 2004
Everything I'd like to say has already been said by all of the one and two star reviews on this page.
Suffice it to say, Ezzo needs to get out of where he doesn't belong.
 
Mistitled: Should be Pregnancy, Birth and Infancy "Wise"  Jan 24, 2004
I picked up this book because I saw the subtitle "Birth by Design" and am always enthralled to see books that actually accentuate women taking a primary or at least partnership role with the caregiver in bringing their child through the birth process.

Unfortunately, the book covered very little about the birth process itself.

In fact, that is the primary short coming of this book: everything is very minimal, clinically written and dry.

I was very disappointed to say the least.
