Birth_With_Confidence_bookBirth with Confidence: savvy choices for normal birth

Yes, ‘Birth with Confidence: savvy choices for normal birth’ was launched one year ago on Friday 24th May 2013

A lot can happen in a year …

Some of the things I’ve absolutely loved during this first year of my books publication –

Meeting fellow birth passionistas
Hearing what’s happening in regional, interstate areas.
Seeing so many student midwives at the book events – a hopeful way forward surely!
Hearing birth stories of all types—passionate, distressing, traumatic, blessed, triumphant, peaceful, love bombed—all sacred.
Witnessing the truth of changing birth one birth at a time.

Thank you everyone for the opportunity to connect and share some birth chat. x Rhea

What now?

A few exciting things –

The first print run is almost gone so we are just set for a new print run … an eBook version is on it’s way … getting the book up on Amazon, etc. … setting up a YouTube channel … getting into Book II … and of course always up for any opportunities to talk about birth!
