Archived: Love Your Birth book: to change the way we talk about birth

iCrowdNewswire - Oct 30, 2015

Love Your Birth book

The story of the project

Love Your Birth is here to change the way we talk about birth. We’re often led to believe that birth is a painful experience that we just need to ‘get through’ any way we can in order to birth a healthy baby. But what if you heard that birth could be joyful? Empowering? Pleasurable? Would it make you plan for your birthing day differently?

Love Your Birth positive birth stories book
Recent research has shown that if a woman is exposed to just ONE positive birth story it changes her outlook on birth and she actively questions her birthing options and seeks out a better birth experience. This leads to better birth and post natal outcomes for both mother and baby.

The stories collected for this book showcase a range of births including natural hospital deliveries, home births, water births and caesareans. The women who have graciously shared their personal experiences are everyday women – just like you. Each birth has been photographed by a professional photographer, allowing an intimate peek into real, normal (but always amazing) birth.

How the funds will be used

The book has been designed and is ready to send to the printers. I need your help to raise enough funds to cover the cost of printing the minimum required amount of books. To create such a beautiful book, it was essential I source offshore printing to maintain the highest level of quality. All design costs have already been taken care of, so the total campaign amount consists of:

– $12,000 (AUD) for printing a run of 1,500 soft cover, full colour books
– $1,500 for our proof book (required for printing)
– $1,500 for book publishing administration and customs clearance
– $1,800 fees

Production schedule

The print run will take place approximately one month after my Pozible project is funded to allow for the proof book to be created and sent to the printers. I expect to take delivery of the books within 3 months so am allowing for orders to be sent in late March 2016.
