Ofri Marton, mother and birth professional at Birthready, was anxious about childbirth before her first baby’s arrival.
She attended Katrina’s Birth Goddess workshop for expecting mums and got hold of “this beautiful book,” A Modern Woman’s Guide to A Natural Empowering Birth by Katrina Zaslavsky.(Afterword by Dr Sarah Buckley MD)
She felt she needed to read positive stories and find out what it’s like for a woman giving birth, feeling empowered and feeling assured.
Ofri found it really interesting to discover how they did it, that they felt strong, calm and excited about birth rather than the scary stories you normally hear when you ask your friends how their birth was. (not necessarily the headspace you want to be in before you give birth to your first child!)
She loved this book and reading all the positive birth experiences.
