The Positive Birth Book – A new approach to pregnancy, birth and the early weeks

by Milli Hill

Are you pregnant for the first time or are you looking for more resources this time around? This book is absolutely packed with non-biased real-deal information!

It’s full of bite-size nuggets of information and brilliantly illustrated with graphics and pictures. Milli’s wealth of knowledge is enhanced by even more resources throughout the book. Womens voices are heard throughout the book which is something that is so encouraging.

In an age where fear is hovering over the childbirth through the media, news and the impact of dramatic and fearful TV shows, this book does the opposite. The Positive Birth Book lives up to it’s name but in a realistic sense. Milli covers everything and anything to do with pregnancy, childbirth and the early weeks. No type of birth is portrayed better than another and Milli shares hundreds of tools to provide options for every stage along the way. She is also really funny and I found the book to be totally reader-friendly.

Check out the Positive Birth Movement and see if there is a local group near you. I try to make it along to the Tooting PBM monthly meet ups. They are free and the same topic is discussed around the world at the many PBM groups that is a growing movement. You can also find your local group on Facebook and request to join.
