Reviews of SECOND LABOR: Mothers Share POST-Birth Stories" 5 Stars...Honestly refreshing...an indispensable parenting book." - Readers' Favorite..".cathartic." - Publisher's Weekly

"Where was this book after I gave birth?!...I cannot overstate just how valuable 'SECOND LABOR' is for validating women in that difficult time. Some cases of postpartum depression could be avoided if women read 'SECOND LABOR' during pregnancy to prepare themselves for the challenges that follow birth. I needed this book fifteen years ago, when I first became a mother. I can only be grateful that Chaya Kasse Valier has filled that need now."
- Amanda Bradley, Writer, Mother of Three"I really loved it...Definitely a book for my pregnancy lending library."
- Rachelle Oseran, Lamaze Childbirth Educator/Trainer, Mother of Three"SECOND LABOR was well written and edited, and each of the stories stood alone quite well. As someone who doesn't read birthing literature, I was amazed that I found each chapter so captivating. Chaya Valier had the insight and experience to find mothers from around the world to share their stories, and each one had a new angle about her new angel."
- Doug Goldstein, Financial Advisor, Father of Four"As a midwife, I see women in need of tremendous support after their births. This book shows such an accurate spectrum of experiences, and I can see it really increasing the awareness of how much support is needed during the postpartum period. Also, the stories were just very interesting to read. I'm grateful to Chaya Kasse Valier for getting the word out via SECOND LABOR!" - Leigh Maller, Certified Professional Midwife, Mother of Seven"I am one of the contributing writers in this book, and I was so pleased to have the opportunity to share my story about what it was like after we had our 3rd baby - a girl after two boys, the youngest of which was already eight years old. Before writing for this book, no one had ever asked me about how I felt, AFTER the birth. I hope this book will be used to inspire and educate other parents, parents-to-be, and anyone supporting them. Thank you Chaya Kasse Valier - I really appreciated the chance to share my story."
- Abby Friedman, Director, College Prep Academy, Mother of Three"This heartwarming book is a must-read for expectant families, and the professional and lay people who care for and about them. Reading these true stories - written with love, as well as heart (and body) aches, brought laughter, smiles and tears to my own heart.. It also brought memories of my own "second labors" (even though that term hadn't been invented until this book) and thoughts I had at the time about "things your mother never told you."
-Ruth Kramer, Mother of Three, Grandmother of Ten"I was enthralled reading these stories, and I do not even have children yet. It taught me about what life can really be like after you have a baby. A few family members and close friends have confided in me about how hard it was at first, so I'm glad there's a book out there to help people see what it's really like." - Avital Macales, Translator & Editor, Singer"There was something in every one of the stories that I could relate to."
- Rachel Oppenheim, Actress, Mother of Eight
