As featured on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 5 Live Selected as one of the Independent's 10 best pregnancy books for expectant parents Birth is a feminist issue. It's the feminist issue nobody's talking about. Finally blasting the feminist spotlight into the labour ward, Milli Hill encourages women everywhere to stand and deliver, not lie back and think of England. As women consider anew their personal autonomy through the lens of #metoo, Give Birth Like a Feminist insists that birth is no longer left off the list in discussions about female power, control and agency. Both a thought-provoking guide for pregnant women, and a call to arms, this is a galvanising book that explains why women are the key decision makers in childbirth, why they need to know their rights and take an active role in their choices, and why they must find their voice and have their say in the birth room just as they have already done in the board room and the bedroom. Milli Hill lays bare the modern experience of pregnancy and birth in the developed world through research, personal testament and the accounts of hundreds of mothers. She illustrates how medicalisation and systems laid down by a patriarchal society have developed to disempower, even dehumanise, women at the gateway to motherhood. She then prepares the current generation of women for what to expect, setting out their often overlooked options and rights. This book answers the questions: Why should women, their families and healthcare professionals care about women having a positive birth experience? And why should women expect or demand more from their birth? For too long, women have been told that a healthy baby is 'all that matters'. Give Birth Like a Feminist dares to say: women matter too.

'I feel so lucky to have read Milli's book while pregnant, she completely changed my way of looking at giving birth' Ella Mills, author of Deliciously Ella 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
