1) Tell us a little something about your book…
Inspiring With Stories, Letters of Encouragement Support and Love
My book is a compilation of stories from women around the world. What makes it unique, is the stories are written as a personal letter to the reader. I’m a prenatal class teacher and decided to write the book after a class, where a former student talked about her beautiful birth experience.
2) When was your lightbulb moment?
I was in bed the following morning thinking about how excited expectant couples are when they hear a positive birth story, and the impact it has. I wondered how I could reach more couples. In our society, we are bombarded with negative images of childbirth. I want them to know the truth, that a positive birth is possible. My lightbulb moment was that same morning, when I decided to write a book that would challenge the way we viewed birth. Empowering women to take charge of their experience.
3) Three words of advice…
My three words of advice? GO. FOR. IT! Seeing your hard work come to fruition is satisfying and exhilarating. There is no greater feeling than when you open your first box of books and see your newborn looking up at you! It takes courage and it’s not easy, but if you want to write a book, it’s definitely worth it. I love knowing that my little book is out there making a difference in the birth experience of the women who read it!
GO. FOR. IT!
