Product Details


Joyous Childbirth provides an insightful look at the secrets that giving birth holds, as told through the amazing story of one physician awakening to the ‘Spark of Life!’ Dr Yoshimura fills us with nurturing information that will guide you to claim your power, release fear, find joy, and birth yourself and your baby in love.” —Debra Pascali-Bonaro, Director of Orgasmic Birth

Joyous Childbirth Changes the World is a masterpiece of truth and wisdom and hope. May its message transform the way we approach birth.” —Christiane Northrup, M.D., OB/GYN and author of the New York Times bestsellers Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

“Dr. Yoshimura’s courage and vision in fashioning a clinic to meet the needs of women during pregnancy and birth have been remarkable, to say the least … So here, at last, is the story of how [he] reached a philosophy of birth that is in harmony with nature but accepts that modern technology, too, has an important place in optimal maternity care.” —Ina May Gaskin, from the foreword
