Weekly calls The Woman's Belly Book "liberating."
Another reviewer says it "shows women how to open their eyes to their bodies'
true and natural beauty. A must-read for any woman who is sick of the emotional
yo-yo of self-criticism."

who has sucked in her gut since I was old enough to remember, this book has been
a wonderful blessing and...phew!...a relief."
