    Beautiful, powerful words. If I hadn’t had the privilege of living when and where I do, I would have been one of those statistics and my son – if he’d survived – would not have a mummy. I am forever grateful for that, and very aware that others are not so lucky. Thank you for reminding me – and suggesting practical ways in which – I can join hands with others to help change that, or at least make a start…

    Because of you and the book you shared, I was inspired to do research of my own when I was pregnant with my daughter almost 3 years ago. I’ve passed along what I know and good resources I’ve found about birth to my pregnant friends and hopefully have helped them realize their options. Sharing stories truly impacts others. Thank you for sharing yours.

    I agree. It is kind’a hard to find the good storytellers. The authentic ones.
    And…
    Just in case anyone is interested… I write some stories… I’m just sayin’…

    Says the girl with the paint brush in her hand for her pic. (shit) But really!

    Are we allowed to use the banners you have posted? I would love to write about being born a mother because I am one of the ones treading the road less popular and writing passionate stuff.

  • Heather Armstrong

    Yes! Absolutely. Send me what you’re writing and I’ll link to it.

    I wrote tangentially about this topic yesterday, about becoming a mom (although mine related to being diagnosed with cancer shortly afterward). Coincidentally, I posted two pictures from that day, meeting the love of my life. I’ll upload them to the EMC FB page. Thanks, Heather, for making so many women’s voices heard.
