Description

Birth Work as Care Work presents a vibrant collection of stories and insights from the front lines of birth activist communities. The personal has once more become political, and birth workers, supporters and doulas now find themselves at the fore of collective struggles for freedom and dignity. At a moment when agency over our childbirth experiences is increasingly centralised in the hands of professional elites, Birth Work as Care Work presents creative new ways to reimagine the trajectory of our reproductive processes.
