‘Feelings of Change’ is a collection of stories told by fourteen Australian women having their first baby. The stories explain what happened during pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and parenting including feelings during each experience. The women explore love for their baby, relationships and sexuality, hopes for the future, even aspects of their past that were spiritually moving. Some planned homebirth, others planned hospital birth. All planned natural births of healthy babies whom they would breastfeed. The reality was often quite different. This story collection highlights the detail that makes each woman’s experience of childbearing unique.
