Giveaway is now closed! Jen Chendea is the winner!
I’m happy to host a holiday giveaway of Patsy Harman’s book, Arms Wide Open. To enter, just leave a comment sharing what giving birth taught you about yourself! I will draw the winner randomly on January 1.
An excerpt from my review of the book:
Harman’s writing style is lyrical and engaging as well as candid. The book is based on personal journals and reading it feels like eavesdropping on someone’s very private thoughts and feelings. The book is much more of a look at a woman’s feelings about her life, than it is a “manifesto” about birth or about the practice of midwifery. In this manner, I feel like you receive a much more complete picture of a midwife’s life and journey, rather than reading a sequence of birth stories. Patsy has a lot of life in addition to birth. While definitely not a “feel good” book, Arms Wide Open is a deeply touching and very honest exploration of one woman’s personal journey in life, love, motherhood, and midwifery.
