About the Book

Psychologist and folklorist Michele Klein draws upon many rich sources—prayers, folktales, folk remedies, as well as biblical, rabbinical, and mystical literature—to explore childbirth from a specifically Jewish context.


A National Jewish Book Award Winner


Childbirth has undergone a revolution, and Michele Klein’s book gives historical depth the Jewish perspective of this revolution. It deserves a place on parents’ bookshelves next to classics like…What to Expect When You’re Expecting. Besides being extremely informative about the abundance of Jewish folklore surrounding childbirth, Klein’s book addresses the emotional and spiritual issues involved in every aspect of birth.
