"At least you and the baby are healthy."

Thatís what they said when they handed him to me. And they were right. Why then, so long after my body has healed, do I still feel broken? A whisper inside of me insists: Birth is more than a means to a baby. There was something I was supposed to do, something I was to receive through giving birth.

Pregnant again, when the doctor tries to schedule another cesarean, I refuse. I will not submit to being tied down, cut open, and having my uterus extracted again without a fight.

That's why I ask a midwife to help me give birth. I tell her that Iím determined and strong. But she sees through my tough-guy armor. She smiles, saying, "Birth isnít a battle to win or lose. Itís the result of delving into your vulnerability and finding your true feminine power."

In exquisite detail, Roanna holds nothing back in her powerful birth memoir, plunging the reader deep into the intimacy of this universal rite of passage. Part memoir, part manifesto, this is a must read for anyone who has given birth, will give birth, or who loves someone who will give birth.

Roanna Rosewood is an international award-winning speaker, successful restaurateur, accomplished real estate investor, co-founder of BirthPlan Radio, and most importantly, a mother.
