This month we are giving away a

Hypnobabies Hypno-Doula Workbook plus 5 CDs

AND

the book Labor of Love by Cara Muhlhahn .

The Hypnobabies Hypno-Doula Workbook PLUS 5 CDs is a great set for doulas or midwives.  It will prepare you to support a mom using hypnosis for childbirth.   If you are an expecting mom who has a doula, this would be perfect gift to give to them!  

There is nothing more exciting than to recieve a book in the mail, except recieving a BIRTH book in the mail. I got it on Friday and had finished the book by Sunday.

The Labor of Love was written by Cara Muhlhahn, was the midwife who is shown in the movie, The Business of Being Born. It was interesting to read about her journey into midwifery and her experiences as a homebirth midwife.

Cara started her studies assisting lay midwives, went onto nursing schools and spent time working in L&D as a nurse. Cara was often disturbed by what she saw going on at births in the hospitals.

The flip-flopping of obstetrical absolutes is a disturbing trend to me. There is something suspecious about “truths” that change every few years, especially regarding a physiological process that has not changed much since the beginning of time.

She ended up going on to become a nurse-midwife and after working in a birth center eventually chose to go on her own as a homebirth midwife.

The satisfaction I get from midwifery makes it worth the high degree of dedication and sacrifice. My work takes a lot out of me. But I like the adventure that midwifery brings to my life. I like having to drop everything to answer to a higher calling, the ruggedness of hard work and the idea that when nature calls, there is no choice but to answer.

I really liked this quote. While I don’t have the same level as stress as a midwife does, I get a taste of “when nature calls” and having to respond when it does. Birth is very unpredictable and being on call as a doula is quite an adventure.

Labor of Love was an easy, enjoyable read. I think that this is a great book for doulas, midwives or anyone working in the birth field. So I am thrilled to be able to do a give away of a copy of Labor of Love on the Hypnobabies blog!
