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.

The Midwife of Hope River by Patricia Harmon

The Midwife's Tale by Sam Thomas (Interview with the author)
