Publishers Description: Internationally renowned childbirth educator, anthropologist and feminist icon Sheila Kitzinger (1929-2015) was one of the most influential figures in the natural childbirth movement.In a pioneering career spanning more than 50 years she campaigned for and oversaw a radical change in maternity care, placing women s rights and choices at the very heart of childbirth.Her passion, research and knowledge of childbirth have had enormous impact on millions of women worldwide.In her long-awaited autobiography finished shortly before her death in April 2015, Sheila speaks openly about her remarkable life and career.From childhood growing up with a feminist mother and her student days in Oxford, to her global anthropological and activist work and family life with husband Uwe and their five daughters, this is a fascinating insight into an extraordinary woman.
