I wanted you to know that my book has been uploaded to the printers with a publishing date of April 2011. Today we received a sample of the cover that was so beautiful I almost cried. This book is not only going to be a powerful treatise on the power, profit and politics that drive childbirth in America, but also a wonderful resource for the midwifery and reproductive rights movements.

In the past few decades there has been a remarkable quiet revolution as women have birthed new ideas and healing practices in caring for themselves and one another in the childbearing year. “Midwife” is such a great archetype of the person who helps us through the secret gateway to our interior selves, who keeps us breathing and focusing on what is possible, who assists us in finding our rhythm, and who creates sacred space for the dance of the soul.

I am so eager for this book to get into the hands of as many people as possible because I know that the stories of real live midwives will entertain as well as inspire readers. Less than one month until this baby is born into the world! I can hardly wait.

    Wow how exciting! This looks to be work of history and art. I can’t wait until it comes out. Will it be available as an e-book (i.e. Nook)? Please?!

  2. Carrie, you nailed it, it is just that–a work of history and art! It will be available in print first, and soon after as an e-book. Pub date April 1–coming soon!
