Think giving birth is just one day so your birth choices don't matter? Think again. Playwright Karen Brody interviewed over one hundred low-risk, educated mothers about their birth experiences and turned what she discovered into a critically acclaimed play "Birth." Today the play is part of BOLD, a global movement to improve childbirth choices for mothers. If you want to understand childbirth today then this is a must-read (and see ) play. The themes in "Birth" are universally found in most industrialized countries today: -a surprisingly large number of pregnant women do not know their birth options and the risks of medical interventions; -pregnant women are being physically and verbally coerced; -power - and pleasure - are available to women who give birth; -and that inside all pregnant moms there is a knowing that their bodies rock. "Birth" has been performed to sold-out audiences throughout the world as part of the BOLD movement, raising money for projects that educate pregnant mothers and expand their childbirth choices. This book includes the complete second edition of "Birth," a foreword by bestselling women's health author Dr. Christiane Northrup, and Karen Brody's reflections on childbirth today and how pregnant mothers can have an empowering birth.
Karen Brody is a writer, mother, and activist. She wrote the play "Birth" and founded the BOLD movement to improve birth choices for mothers. Brody is also trains birth workers to empower pregnant mothers using her FEAR to FREEDOM Birth tools. For more about Karen's work go to www.boldaction.org and www.feartofreedombirth.com.
