'On Autumn's Wing…' was an exceptional book. I really felt the pain, fear and anger the mother went through both physically and emotionally. More than that I viewed the strength of the mother and how she transmitted her strength to her daughter, thus, helping her child be the best that she can. This book should stand as encouragement for other parents and families dealing with this issue. Unfortunately, expectant mothers are not aware of the dangers of birth traumas that the physician can evoke. They would all benefit from reading this book and informing their husbands and families as to what they will insist on when in the delivery room. New mothers need to understand that they have the right to question that doctor and insist on proper treatment. Labor is not the time for the mother to launch an argument with the doctor but awareness like this might help young mothers set up decisions before they are in labor. This story needs to be read widely to inform people of the travesties in the medical profession and how a wrong decision affects the lives of an entire family, not to mention, a child.
