Pleasurable Husband/Wife Childbirth: The Real Consummation of Married Love by Marilyn Moran, ISBN 0-940128-05-5 $22.95, 228 pages. OUT OF PRINT
Already hundreds of couples have "changed their lives-for the better," by reading Moran's newsletter, "The New Nativity," and her first book, Birth and the Dialogue of Love. Now she presents more reasons why husband and wife should give birth at home, privately, just the way the conception of the baby had been. The presence of third parties spoils it for them.
Pleasurable Husband/Wife Childbirth: The Real Consummation of Married Love describes how birth is a sexual event and how it can be pleasurable when husband and wife birth alone rather than under medical circumstances. Moran cites plenty of examples of truth/facts that are not revealed to patients who submit to the medical childbirth system. She presents research that reveals that couples who give birth intimately return to a satisfying sex life sooner and with more frequency. They often experience less fatigue and a lower incidence of postpartum depression.
