This week we are so excited to welcome Dr. Britta Bushnell to The Birth Geeks. She’s recently published her first book, Transformed by Birth, and graciously agreed to talk to us about her work, her book.
“Birth and postpartum are profoundly transformative experiences. Yet, many childbirth preparation books focus on the mechanics of the process: the physical signs that it may be happening, ways to cope with the sensations, and information on how to navigate the medical aspects. Transformed by Birth: Cultivating Openness, Resilience, and Strength for the Life-Changing Journey from Pregnancy to Parenthood, by Britta Bushnell, Ph.D., shifts the focus from the details and minutia of birth to its meaning-making potential. In so doing, it provides you with a framework in which to explore what will likely happen to your identity as you move through the profound journey from pregnancy to parenthood.”
Today Britta and Hillary talk about:
- how mythology relates to birthing
- why preparing for childbirth by teaching with a story can help recreate the hormonal state
- the process of becoming parents
- and so much more!
- Transformed by Birth
- Behind the Curtain – Britta’s Experience of Reading Her Audiobook
- Sharing Birth Stories
- The Myth of Self-Care
