Item description for Home Births: Stories to Inspire And Inform by Abigail Cairns...
This collection of first-hand recollections by mothers and their partners gives an insight into the modern experience of home birth, from the first decision to the final push.
As well as exploding some common misconceptions about who chooses home birth and why, the book provides real life, down-to-earth descriptions of the experience from the point of view of the people most closely involved. The book will hold particular interest for men, as more than a quarter of the contributions have been provided by fathers.
Anyone reading these vivid, intimate, and emotional accounts will understand why so many of those who choose home birth become passionate advocates of parental choice and non-medical childbirth. As one contributor comments with satisfaction, "Two hours after the birth we were left alone at home: the three of us, a bottle of bubbly and the cat."
