Is This Your Birth?
Buckle your seatbelts for a wild ride through a busy
baby-birthing hospital ward!
We heard there’s
a funky new novel out, called “This Is Your Birth”, that tells the
real truth about some people’s experience when they get down to
actually parting with that Big Belly.
nurse in a busy Labor and Delivery ward gives you the lowdown on
what it’s like from the nurse’s point of view. There’s a bunch
of different nurses, and then there are the patients they’re taking
care of. Not everybody’s got your picture-pretty doula scene
going on, and the differences in the way mamas part with their Belly
are a lot of fun to read about.
funny that it’s a novel, because this book is supposedly much more
straightforward than a lot of other books we’ve read that supposedly
prepare us for the Birth Day. On the back cover is a real
quote from a first time mom that read it in her sixth month which
me, as a pregnant woman, “This Is Your Birth” was a refreshing
reality check. I feel more prepared after having read it than
with any of the pop-spirituality birth books I’ve read. We are
all adults here. I don’t expect my baby to be pulled out of a
hat accompanied by smoke and mirrors; and anyone who does is bound
to have a poor experience. I think this book reinforces that.”
We haven't had a
chance to give this a full read but it sounds like a gas to us and
we knew you needed some humor!
