Birthwork. It is an all-encompassing profession describing maternal health practitioners who offer physical, emotional and mental support to a family as they prepare to welcome new life.
Birth workers are on the ground doing the footwork that connects tradition and ancient-wisdom to modern day technologies in the realm of maternal and child health. Birthwork is a trek into uncharted territories of identity, morality and a trusted Knowing that birthing is, first, a function of nature. What happens when we uplift the birth worker and give them the space to perch as birds do just before taking flight? What scenes and messages are captured when those who are often rooted take a bird’s eye view from the skys?
In this anthology, brought to you by Birthwork Publishing, LLC, we begin the first installment of a series of first-person narratives told by birth workers who span across a dynamic spectrum of skills, pedagogy, culture and specialty. Join us as we celebrate the comradery that finds purpose in the joys, trials and tribulations of bringing new life through to this world. So, grab your notebook, breathe deeply and appreciate the expansiveness of thought that is the first profession we each were introduced to the moment we opened our eyes and took flight.
