The Women’s Collaborative Book Project brings you Bringing Birth Home – a collection of stories from moms, midwives, and other birth professionals. A great read for inspiration, information, wisdom, and informed decision making.
Bringing Birth Home is a collection of stories joining the voices of moms, doulas, midwives, and other birth professionals as they explore the experience of having a home birth after a previous hospital birth. Each story highlights experiences and expertise that have shifted the authors’ paradigms from hospital-based to home-based as they consider birth in general, and specifically for their own families’ journeys. There are many reasons why more and more women are making the big decision to bring their births beyond the hospital and back into the home or using free-standing birth centers which are owned and operated by midwives. Within these pages, you will discover personal stories that will make you laugh and cry, as well as professional, evidence-based information that will help you to make an empowered and informed decision about following a different path with your own birth. Well known Gentle Birth Choices author, Barbara Harper, midwife, and founder of Waterbirth International, wrote a fabulous, informative, evidence-based, heartfelt, funny chapter on why you should consider using water immersion for your birth. Her story is amazing.
