In The Spirit of Homebirth: Modern Women, an Ancient Choice, edited by Bronwyn Preece, weaves together intimate stories of birth and community written by mothers, partners, doulas, midwives and children from the rocky shores, remote towns and cities of British Columbia, Canada.
Bronwyn’s collection of prose, poetry, photography and illustrations contributes to a renewed understanding of, and confidence in, women’s natural abilities to birth, creating transformative options for individuals and communities worldwide.
Today we celebrate the official publication of the book, and this Saturday, March 21st Mothering Touch in Victoria, BC is hosting a book launch and reading of the collection.
“This is a richly grassroots book that is honestly hard to find anymore…It has a quietness about it that I appreciate, and my hope is that it will mentor and inspire more communities looking to reclaim their traditional practices around birth and
ancestral connections.” — Marinah Velenzuela Farrell, President of the Midwives Alliance of North America
