Birth is the feminist issue. It’s the feminist issue nobody’s talking about.

Reviews

Milli is a compassionate and passionate writer who puts women squarely at the heart of her endeavours.’Emma Barnett, Woman’s Hour ‘Milli Hill is one of our very favourite birth writers. Birth has been overlooked by feminists for too long, in spite of the injustices happening in the labour ward. This book is a rallying cry for women everywhere to take charge of their births and recognise their own autonomy at this pivotal moment in their lives. Everyone should read it and look at the experience of childbirth through a feminist lens.’Ricki Lake, Producer and Abby Epstein, Director: The Business of Being Born ‘Whether a person is considering giving birth or not, Milli Hill's exploration of childbirth as a central feminist issue is a must-read. I loved this book!’ Soraya Chemaly ‘Everyone should read this awesome book! The world has changed and Milli Hill connects the dots in a way that can change minds and improve outcomes.’ Tina Cassidy ‘Finally. Someone brave enough to say the words “feminist” and “birth” in the same sentence in a book that is not an academic polemic.’ Hannah Dahlen Praise for the Positive Birth Book ‘I only wish I had read this when I was pregnant. Full to bursting with useful stuff!’ Sarah Turner, The Unmumsy Mum ‘The Positive Birth Book takes expectant parents through the maze of information and choices, in a down to earth, practical, empowering, reassuring way. I highly recommend that you put your feet up, relax and enjoy preparing yourself for the birth of your baby by reading this great book.’ Sue Atkins, ITV This Morning Parenting Expert ‘Seriously sound, straight-from-the-hip advice.’ Mother&Baby Magazine‘
