Lessons of Labor
Bookmark and Share
What if instead of trying to avoid the pain and uncertainty of labor, we asked what we could learn from it? In telling the intimate birth stories of her three children and miscarriage, Julia Aziz shows us how giving birth can be one of motherhood’s (and life’s) greatest teachers. Rather than giving advice on how to labor or how to parent, her memoir Lessons of Labor offers the message that a woman can grow through the challenges that life presents her and learn to trust herself.
