” Gentle Birth Choices is the best film on childbirth available today.”
Midwifery Today Magazine
“. . . [Harper] dispels medical myths and re-imagines birth without fear, pain, or violence. . . . The DVD vividly demonstrates the strength of women during childbirth and the healthy and happy outcome of women exercising gentle birth choices.”
Branches of Light, Issue 27, Fall-Winter-Spring 2005-2006
“From a yogic perspective, pursuing the gentlest approach to a natural process like childbirth involves trusting in the capacity of one’s own body. Harper provides the information necessary to do so, not only during labor, but throughout pregnancy, birth and beyond.”
