Twenty things I wish every woman knew about birth – now underway!

I have been saying for ages that I need to turn some of my thoughts and blog posts into a book for women and families and, by telling you all in a blog post, I am now making a committment to doing just that πŸ˜€ The spring weather has seen me returning to my early morning writing habit (which is never quite as easy to stick to in the depths of winter, for some reason! πŸ˜‰ ) and I have made an outline and written a few chapters…


…as I’ve been out and about meeting lovely midwives and birth folk in my workshops over the past few weeks, I am constantly reminded of the value of community in this kind of project. Several of my previous books have benefited from having input from friends and colleagues, and I would like to invite you to have a say in what will go into this book.

I have, in truth, already written a draft list of my ‘twenty things’. I know that I wish all women knew how very amazing their bodies are, and I know I want to tell women several things about the kinds of information and ideas that they will encounter during pregnancy. (If you read my blog, you’ll have an idea of the kind of things this book is likely to include!) But none of this is set in stone, and I would truly love to know what you would include if you made such a list. What do you wish all women knew about birth?

If you would like to send me a thought or let me know what you wish you could tell all women about birth, then please feel free to use the contact form below, or let me know via social media. If I get lots of replies then I might not be able to respond to them individually, but I will read all of them and I promise to keep you regularly posted on how the book is coming along πŸ˜€

All comments are confidential. It’s up to you if you share your name and email address. If you do share your email address, the only circumstance in which I’ll use it is if you’ve said something that I’d like to ask you more about. If you’d like to be kept posted on the progress of the book, you can sign up to my newsletter here.
