Birth Journeys - Positive birth stories to encourage and inspire.
This is a collection of 29 unique birth stories by everyday Australian women (and men).
The stories reflect a wide range of birth experiences and journeys: Births in hospital, Birth Centres and at Home, Water births, Natural births, Twins, Caesareans, VBACs and an Unassisted birth.
Each story contributes to the message that a woman’s experience of birth matters. Regardless of the path labour takes, trust in birth, feeling safe and nurtured, and a respectful relationship with carers are shown to be key factors in having a positive experience.
Birth Journeys also contains up-to-date and informative contributions from Australian Midwives, Academics, Doulas, Birth Educators, Organisations and Authors.
The beautiful and powerful stories in Birth Journeys contain the keys to preparing for your own positive birth — the best beginning to motherhood.
