Kelly Mochel is an author and mama who is donating two copies of "We're Having a Homebirth". This is a great book for a doula who works with home births to have in her library.
This awesome book is full of colorful pages and simple story lines, giving children the confidence and the educational support needed to help them learn about their family's upcoming birthing time.
Like I said, there are TWO copies of this book to give away. Read on to find out how you might win one of these gorgeous books. So, without further ado, I would like to introduce you to this delightfully talented mama, Kelly Mochel:
I went to New Zealand immediately after graduating from UCSB for what was supposed to be a 3months-or-so working vacation. I ended up meeting my husband whilst working at a little ski resort and staying! We had our first daughter there - a fantastic experience. It is then that I became aware of the shortcomings of the birthing culture here in the US as compared to other countries.How did you get into this line of work:
As we started planning for our homebirth here in the states, we considered the inclusion, education and preparedness of our 2yr old to be of the utmost importance. We found very little out there by way of children's literature relating to homebirth, and what we did find was available overseas, making it pretty pricey. My working background is in graphic design, so I set out to create a fun, useful, affordable resource for our family and others like ours.What makes your heart skip a beat, hold your breath, or sigh with happiness:
Hearing stories about peaceful, empowering, healthy birth experiences that leave every family member feeling safe, fulfilled and happy.When you think of a doula, what do you think:
Warmth, kindness, and loving support at the most special of times.Consequentially, what do you think of birth practices in the U.S. right now:
I think we've reached a point where every hospital and OBGYN needs to take a good, long look at their practices and reevaluate. There is research, statistics, feedback from women & families, and successful birth models in other countries that are all being simultaneously ignored. All families are unique and have differing needs for a successful and healthy birthing experience - we need healthcare providers, legislators, and communities to work together to meet those varying needs.:Kelly invites you to visit her on Facebook, and check out her book online.
