Every mother knows – birth is not just labor and delivery.
It’s triumph, heartache and falling in love with a new baby wrapped in mere hours, or sometimes days, of work and expectation.
The Birth Next Door is an anthology of 28 births in and around Tarrant County, Texas. These are stories, in their own words, of moms who experienced birth in almost every way.
Birth in cars, after days of labor, full of surprises or deep contentment, in awe of their bodies and their partners and the capacity for one day to truly change their lives (for better or worse).
A portion of the purchase of every copy of The Birth Next Door goes to benefit the Tarrant County Birth Network.
