Recently coming into the possesion of some gorgeous vintage birth books, I knew I had to share them with you all!
First up, we have Birth Without Violence by Frederick Leboyer. A groundbreaking title showcasing a new gentle way for babies to enter the world, and shifting perspectives on awareness of newborns.
When I first cracked open this book, the images are quite jarring with classic and slightly brutal birth images strewn about the pages. As you get deeper into the book, the tone shifts and the babies are shown in a new light. Massaged, held gently in water, caressed and held with love. A new era of newborn care was being heralded in, in 1975. A good reminder to us all, to love on our babies and give them a gentle entry into the world. This book and many others are found in Emma's lending library, all my (Emma's) birth clients have access to these resources - just ask!
A deeper dive with Emma (owner, birth & postpartum Doula) into social media and our posts. What makes the backbone of Bunky Bambino, filled with tips & tricks, reflections on the birth / postpartum world, and knowledge we think is worth sharing with you all.
