There are two new books on the market which may be of interest to you.
The term “homebirth cesarean” has only recently entered the birth world’s lexicon. Today the phrase, which refers to a planned out-of-hospital birth that ends in the hospital operating room, represents new understanding and healing pathways for mothers, families, and birth professionals.
“Homebirth Cesarean” aspires to bring deeper understanding to these unrecognized births, to celebrate the women and birth professionals transformed by them, and to give childbirth and postpartum professionals the tools they need to support families as they begin their parenting journeys.
This workbook is a trusted and ideal companion for HBC mothers no matter where they are in their journey or how recently they experienced their HBC. Over six chapters, HBC mothers chart their course of self-paced healing with simple practices, creative exercises, and meditations. A powerful and safe exploration into healing after a difficult birth, this is an essential guide for women seeking their identity as a birth warrior and mother.
