As a non-labor Caesarian born myself, I completely resonated with Jane Butterfield English's experiences. I've read the book three times so far. (The first time when I purchased the book in the early 90's and twice this summer.) I find the words she uses in the journal section that describes her journey of discovery to be supportive, enlightening and helpful in providing a map of the issues that have haunted me throughout my life. Since we live in a world where most of those around us were born vaginally, it's really helpful to hear a different view. Just becoming aware of this Different Doorway has helped me reframe some of my experiences around boundaries, difficult relationships, my craving for touch, the pain I experience when separating from others, my determination. If you are non-labor Cesarian born, I think you'll learn alot about yourself through this book. I've also found in talking about the book that a number of my friends are also Cesarian born and they fully understand the issues I've been dealing with.
