Birth Stories for the Soul Summary

Birth Stories for the Soul: Tales from Women, Families and Childbirth Professionals by Denis Walsh

Birth stories have the power to inspire and change individuals in ways that research cannot. They can reach the heart and soul of readers without demanding academic understanding or intellectual reflection. In doing so, they can reveal the strengths and weaknesses of maternity care and challenge all of us to improve and humanise care provision. This is desperately needed in world-wide maternity care services that are increasingly medicalised and premised on an industrial model.
