I just saw the news that Sheila Kitzinger passed away today. Kitzinger's books were some of the first I read when I was first discovering midwifery and home birth. Typical of her spunky self, she was, according to her husband of 63 years, "drinking Kir Royale and champagne and eating chocolates three days ago, knowing she didn't have long."
I'm so sad to lose this wise woman. She's done an enormous service for childbearing women around the world.
Read more about Sheila here at the BBC.
Now, readers, I'd like to know...what are your favorite books by Sheila Kitzinger? (ps...her autobiography is coming out next month!)
