Sheila Kitzinger, passionate campaigner for women's and babies' rights, childbirth educator and author, describes the experiences that have shaped her since childhood and the enormous changes that have taken place over the last 50 years on the subject of birth. Her work as a social anthropologist has taken her round the globe and the knowledge, wisdom and engaging warmth of her books continues to be revelatory and indispensable for thousands of women. This is a rich cross-cultural adventure, a fascinating insight into her world of babies, birth, women, social justice and challenging powerful institutions, a lifetime of dedication to positive social change.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A perfect eulogy to a life well lived.

* The Independent *

'I knew that Sheila has been very involved in developing birth practices, but until I read this autobiography I had no idea just how much she was involved in. Now I have no idea how she fitted it all into one life!'


'Over the last 50 years, whenever there was a women's birthing issue, Sheila was involved.'


'I found this book totally absorbing. Sheila has the most fascinating life and wrote about it in the same energetic fashion with which she must have lived it.'


'This is an exuberant, inspiring book. Read it if you want to remember why you are involved in birth work. Read it if you a midwife and want to feel empowered to listen to women. Read it if you are interested in birth around the world. Read it if you want to be inspired to pursue activism in as area about which you feel passionately. Or read it if you just want to learn about a fascinating life lived through a period of great social change.'

I feel grateful that her voice and encouragement will live on in this vibrant book.
