It is a thought-provoking book, which consists entirely of birth stories told by women, their families and the childbirth professionals involved in their care. The variety of stories offers the reader a humanised view of women s experiences. The stories are diverse, and they are told as felt and seen by the storyteller ... This book would be useful to those looking for an insight into experiences that they themselves have not encountered, or who would like to read someone else s description of a similar experience ... For anyone interested in reading birth stories, or looking at ways to support and understand childbirth from the mother s and the carer s perspective this is a fascinating and useful book. --Janine King, New Digest magazine
Birth stories have the power to inspire and change individuals in ways that research cannot. They can reach the heart and soul of readers without demanding academic understanding or intellectual reflection. In doing so, they can reveal the strengths and weaknesses of maternity care and challenge all of us to improve and humanise care provision. This is desperately needed in world-wide maternity care services that are increasingly medicalised and premised on an industrial model.See all Product description

As a student studying Hospital and Health Care hoping to start a Midwifery degree next year, this book was a 'must read'. After being glued from start to finish to 'Catching Babies' and researching what other work Sheena Byrom had written, I came across 'Birth Stories For The Soul' written by multiple authors. As anticipated, another fantastically heart-warming and compulsive read. The health professionals mentioned within this book are truly inspiring and amazing. I would definitely recommend this book; I believe that not just prospective Midwife's but also many other health professionals, students etc can take something positive and motivating from this fantastic read.

One of the stories is mine and I read the others with great joy. A diverse style of writing that shows the deep emotional connection that comes from knowledge.
