So I’m planning to take my book, The Princess and the Poo, on a European book tour. Any donations towards this tour will be gratefully accepted! My plan is to share the message that natural childbirth can be free of fear and restriction, and a joyful, peaceful experience for mothers, fathers and babies everywhere.
The first mission was to travel to every school in the British isles and to read the story to them, create a play, and generate discussions with the children that will lead on to more education and empowerment about childbirth. We didn’t go to every single one but we did go to A LOT!
The next mission is to go to the places that the book has been translated in: Spain, France, Holland and Germany, and to do more workshops there!
The way that we give birth and the way that we are born are defining factors in how we evolve as humane human beings! To educate our next generation so that they give birth to our grandchildren in love and peace is the pathway to really creating peace on earth! Peace on earth begins with peaceful birth.
What We Need
To create this book tour we need travel costs! Each country has a host where we can stay and our food will be sorted . Our work will be voluntary and all funds will go towards getting to each place and making sure as many books as possible get read and seen by as many people as possible!
To give birth in peace, joyfully and lovingly is every human woman’s birthright! To be born in peace, held lovingly in your mothers arms, free from abuse and harm is every human’s birthright!
In this modern age we are fortunate in this country to have so much, and to have progressed so far, however the ceaserian secton rate is going up and the homebirth rate is going down.
Homebirth is safe and cost effective and could be utilized by up to 70% of the population saving our ailing NHS a lot of money! it costs £800 for a homebirth and £2000 for a c section!, at the moment our homebirth rate is 3% and could change drastically if we only educated ourselves and our children about birth properly!
In an age of TV drama birth is always depicted as an emergency and our children and ourselves have grown to see birth as something abnormal and terrifying, instead of an amazing life changing extreme physical process, filled with love!
Oxytocin ( fast labour in Greek), the hormone responsible for the birth process, and the opening of the birth canal, is only secreted when the body is relaxed and calm, as soon as there is fear the body switchs to creating adrenaline, the closing fight or flight hormone. Just this simple knowledge is changing hospital birth protocols all over the world but if the women giving birth are still terrified because of the tv and lack of education then she will still need a lot of medical intervention to birth her baby.
Educated empowered birth is only going to happen if we educate and empower our selves and our children. Please help me start this process ! Peace on earth begins with peaceful birth! We will change this world one birth at a time!
