Giving Birth- The Real Deal
The most important things you should know and no one told you about childbirth
Birth and early motherhood are often painted as beautiful, natural, magical experiences. While this is true, there is so much more to the process – and often, new mothers find themselves unprepared and overwhelmed, simply for the lack of knowledge.
It was not so long ago that we lived in clans, and before that in tribes. The wisdom of the tribe flowed through our veins. By the time a woman became pregnant, she already knew what she was getting into, and was surrounded with support.
Nowadays, most women are exposed to only a fragment of this great wisdom and mostly in real time – when they are pregnant. Though we live in an information age, new mothers are often unaware of crucial things they should know about childbirth and experience a huge gap between how they imagine early motherhood and what their actual day-to-day looks like.
Following her birthing experience, Keren Boyko embarked on a journey to help expecting mothers fill that gap of crucial knowledge. She gathered twenty-two new moms and well-known birth specialists, to share their professional wisdom, and their brave, honest and humor-filled testimonies. Together, they have created a modern tribal wisdom which will guide you through this wondrous, challenging and powerful time in the best way possible.
