Book Reviews

Me hanging out with Kathleen Kendall-Tackett, publisher and authoer (and PhD and IBCLC and many other amazing things!) I will be reviewing many of her books soon!

I love getting birth books and doing book reviews!  If you are interested in sending me your book I would love to check it out. It only makes sense if the book has something to do with birth or babies or parenting but I love novels about those subjects too.  Message me at sarah (at) birthbootcamp (dot) com and we will communicate.

I also handle social media and blog content for Birth Boot Camp and blog regularly at Mothering Magazine online and I love to promote great authors wherever possible with interviews or guest posts.  Get in touch! Here are a few reviews I have done.

Cut, Stapled, and Mended by Roanna Rosewood
One woman's journey to VBAC after two cesareans.

Hannah, Delivered by Elizabeth Jarrett Andrew
A novel about how one woman grows, changes and is "birthed" as she becomes a midwife and discovers her own origins.

The Midwife of Hope River by Patricia Harmon
Beautiful novel about midwifery and what it looked like before the modern "comeback".  Written by a midwife herself.

The Gift of Giving Life by Various
Birth stories and information by Latter Day Saint Women. A touching and unique book chronicling the spiritual development that comes with birth and motherhood.

The Midwife's Tale by Sam Thomas (Interview with the author)
Fictional book about a midwife "way back" accurately chroniciling life in London near the revolution. Loved it!

Baby Wise by Ezzo and Company
(OK- I didn't actually like this one and they sure didn't ask me to review it!  HA!

The Business of Baby by Jennifer Margulis
A review specifically addressing the critics (who probably haven't actually read it) of The Business of Baby.

Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg

Natural Birth for the Mainstream Mama by Lauren Rauseo
