The Many Faces of Home Birth 30 Honest, Firsthand Accounts from Parents around the World Shantel Silbernagel
Finding positive birth stories can be hard, but finding positive birth stories that take place at home is even harder. Most people embarking on potentially life-changing experiences—whether it's climbing Mount Everest or becoming a parent without the aid of a modern hospital—obsessively read and research every possible scenario. The unknowns of home birth create a void that can only be filled with the knowledge and shared experiences of others. The Many Faces of Home Birth fills that void.

With an exciting collection of personal narratives, The Many Faces of Home Birth sheds light on the varied and fascinating experiences of women choosing home birth. Anyone even remotely interested in home birth will want to pull up a chair and witness one of the most intimate moments in each family's life. From the Redwoods of California to a converted cow shed in Ireland, readers will not only be entertained, but also exposed to what home birth really feels, looks, and sounds like. Expectant parents will come away with a deep understanding and sense of security that if others have done this, they can, too.
