In her first book, "Labor of Love: A Midwife's Memoir," (Kaplan Publishing, January, 2009) Cara Muhlhahn shares her fascinating personal story while providing an insider’s look at natural childbirth in the home setting. From tales of her formative adolescent experiences, to the home birth of her son, to engaging accounts of her 30-year-long practice of midwifery, Muhlhahn chronicles the unconventional decisions she made to honor her vocation.
In addition to offering a compelling personal narrative, "Labor of Love" gives readers insight into the home birth movement at a time when it is generating substantial mainstream interest – and controversy.



Be sure to stay tuned.  On April 6, I will post my review and announce the winners.  Then, the interview with Cara will post sometime the following week.

  2. I'm hopeing to train as a midwife when my own little ones are a little older, so I am excited about this interview and would love to read the book.

    The question I think you should ask is: Given how controversial home births are, what reaction to most people have when you tell them what you do?

    What is a common misconception you find that people have when they come to you to have their baby delivered?

  11. My question would be: What birth has stayed with you through the years? I know all of them are special but there has to be one that has never left your heart or mind.

    Thanks!
