This book is surprising. One expects it to be a paean to midwifery, which it certainly is, but it's so much more. First-time writer Mulhahn chronicles her fascinating spiritual journey, describing in detail her formal training and expertise gained as a nurse in hospital OB/GYN units.

That's my bottom line." --The Villager, 12/3/08..".I was "totally fascinated" when I heard about the new book Labor of Love. Written by a midwife, the memoir is all about women who have home births--meaning, they have their babies at home... I love the book. It's fascinating." --Glamour.com Smitten Blog"In addition to singing the praises of women's childbirth wisdom in an accurate and compelling way, "Labor of Love" is also an incredibly good read! Makes me want to stand up and shout, 'Yes! Right on, sister!'" --Christiane Northrup, MD, author of "Mother-Daughter Wisdom, The Wisdom of Menopause, "and" Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom""Reading this book comes second only to the moving experience of having Cara deliver your baby.
