About the Book.
There is an abundance of “advice” for pregnant and post-partum women on the internet—but what good has come from googling your worst-case-scenario fears? Written in the approachable and friendly tone of a best-friend blogger but informed by the insight of a Registered Midwife, A is for Advice seeks to comfort and inspire, providing realistic and soothing advice at a time when most women desperately seek out information.
Whether you prefer a water birth at home or a scheduled C-section in a hospital, whether you believe in painkillers or an all-natural labor, breast milk or formula, this book speaks to concerns common to all women as they approach birth and motherhood. Eschewing the “birth wars” for a women-centered, feminist perspective, A is for Advice does not argue for any one type of birth experience, but rather empowers each woman to be her own advocate. Through 26 letters of the alphabet (C is for Control; F is for Fear; W is for Water), this book offers a compelling call for well-informed, judgment-free, and forgiving birthing and mothering.
