Hey Home Birth Mamas, or Mamas to be who are interested in or are currently planning to home birth:
I am in the process of writing a book about home birth, as a guide book to read before your home birth. I want this to be the book that you pick up when you are just so excited about your baby to come into the world, and so into home birth...elated, nervous, eager for the journey to begin. (I was SO into reading books and watching DVDs about birth when I was pregnant, especially near the end when I just couldn't wait for my daughters arrival!)
So I'd like to create something for those who are thrilled and eagerly anticipating their home birth. I would like to know, to hear from you...
What would you like to read about? Would you like to read home birth mother's experiences? Would you like facts? Pictures? Birth art? What about a DVD that came with the book, interviewing home birth moms, home birth midwives and doulas who have attended home births?
Here is a rough content structure that I have set up so far:
Introduction = My home birth why/how/when
Benefits & Risks
Healthy Mom= Healthy Baby
Your Essential Home Birth Kit
Home Birth Stories
*Pictures, birth art and inspirational/empowering quotes placed throughout at random.
I'd LOVE it if you'd share your thoughts and opinions with me! Thanks!
