Product description


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.
