Simply Give Birth

Simply Give Birth is a new book of inspiring birth stories collected by the brilliant Heather Cushman-Dowdee of Hathor the Cowgoddess fame. It includes more than 30 birth stories collected to inspire strength and empowerment in birth, rather than inspiring the kind of dread that comes from watching those scary birth shows on The Discovery Channel.

From the book:

". . .for too long the other story, the drama, and pain and horrifyingly out-of -control helplessness, has been the predominant tale. It’s time for that story to go the way of dinosaurs. There’s a new way to tell our birth stories, a simple way, with humor and spirit and matter-of-fact exuberance, and that if we collect these types of stories and spread them out into the world, we’ll be spreading the idea that birth is a funny, crazy, everyday, yet still life-changing to our very core, experience. Because it is all that. And more."
