Web Reviews of “Birth, Breath, and Death”

In addition to short professional reviews published in “Birth, Breath, and Death,” there are many reviews of my book available online.

Here is an inspiring review featured in HuffPost by Camalo Gaskin, founder of BIRTHtoBIRTH. She writes powerfully and examines the role midwives/doulas for the birthing and dying serve in our society. “Is there something similar we have to consider when caring for others as they birth and as they die?” Beautiful.
Natalie Kertes Weaver, Chair and Professor of Religious Studies at Ursuline College, composed a thoughtful and heartfelt review of my book for Feminism and Religion. Molly Reemer, founder of Talk Birth wrote a beautiful reflection focusing on the spiritual dimensions of my writing. Tedford J. Taylor, Director of Pastoral Care and Training at the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Hamilton, wrote a review for the College of Pastoral Education and Psychotherapy (CPSP). Tina Cassidy, author of “Birth: The Surprising History of How We Are Born” shared her reflections via her Birth Book blog. Sarah Whedon, founding editor of Pagan Families, wrote a review and Trista Hendren, author of “The Girl God,” composed a short reflection for her blog. I am grateful for the words of Victoria Fedden, author of “Sunshower: Magic, Forgiveness and How I Learned to Bloom where I was Planted.” Finally, The Birthing Ourselves into Being project highlights why wise women read “Birth, Breath, and Death.” When I spoke at the 2013 Empowering Fearless Birth conference in my home state of Utah, The Salt Lake Tribune picked up the story and highlighted “Birth, Breath, and Death.”
