The Gift of Giving Life - Review and Giveaway

This book review is a stop on the Virtual Book Tour for The Gift of Giving Life.

The Gift of Giving Life: Rediscovering the Divine Nature of Pregnancy and Birth offers something that no other book has before–a spiritual look at pregnancy, birth and mothering by and for LDS women and other women of faith.
The Gift of Giving Life does not advocate for any one type of birth or approach to prenatal care, rather it intends to unify families and communities in regard to the sacredness of birth. We also aim to provide you with resources, information, and inspiration that you may not have had access to all in one place before.
We have been commanded to “multiply and replenish the earth,” but with this commandment we were also given a reason: that we might have joy. We hope that this book brings peace, joy, and comfort to families everywhere.
The Gift of Giving Life is an LDS perspective of birth. But more than that, it is a book for women. No matter what your religious beliefs are, your birth practices are, or what stage of motherhood you are in, this book is written for you.

Women are encouraged to delve further into their immortal, and mortal, lineage. A powerful source of encouragement and strength, women are also encouraged to apply it to their pregnancy, birthing, and parenting.

There are stories, stories of other women, their birthing times, their short comings, their plans, and their journeys. Theirs are stories of hope and determination, acceptance and love.

And, my favorite part, there is a wealth of information, tangible practices and research, to help women learn about their options for pregnancy, birth, and parenting, and how to navigate these options with eyes open and intentional pursuit.

As I read through "Patience", a friend came to mind, one who was waiting to become pregnant. And then a client was brought to mind, she was 'overdue' and waiting for her little one's birthing day.

As I read through "Preparation", my heart was called to another woman whom I knew was struggling with choices within her circumstances, her planned place of birth, and her own beliefs.

"Fear", "Faith", "Pain", "The Fourth Trimester", each and every section brought more women to mind, women who could use the truth and collective wealth of wisdom and experience within the covers of this book.

This book is for all women; women of faith, whether it is faith in her body, her God, or her experience. I am excited to have "The Gift of Giving Life" on my shelf - as it truly is a gift, a gift to be connected with the Divine and the Eternal. And my hope is that others will come to this truth as well!
