A Gift Received, a Gift Given
BIRTHRIGHT was conceived soon after my first child was conceived. I was blown away by the amount of empowering knowledge that I was given by my midwives. Midwives, Sage-femmes, wise women have been passing down information from woman to woman for millenia, and most of it has been lost on western medicine. There was never a question in my mind once I realized how privileged I was to have this precious information, that I would share it with all women.
BIRTHRIGHT is a gift to all women. In it you will learn everything I learned about how to have a healthy pregnancy and birth, about eating enough protein, about preparing your body to give birth so that it will be as easy as possible, about options you have when it comes to vaccinating, circumcising and diapering your new baby. There are literally hundreds of bits of information that I have compiled for you. For all women, for all babies, this is my gift to you.

“I read a draft of BIRTHRIGHT a couple years ago before thinking about getting pregnant. In my 37th week of pregnancy, I recently picked up the book to read it again. I wish I had done so before! This book is full of jewels that will save a lot of time and worry to pregnant woman who are earth and health conscious – whether they want a home birth or not. It is concise, straight to the point while very informative.”
– Stephanie Lebay
“Inspirational and informative, BIRTHRIGHT was an excellent resource for me as a woman planning on having children soon! She gave me the motivation and know-how I needed to be healthy for not just myself, but for the brand new life I would be privileged to bear. The book challenged preconceived notions I had about midwives and homebirth. As you read about a new idea, the second you find yourself asking “How does that work exactly?” or “Why would I even want to do that?”, Betsy will give you an answer that makes sense. I also loved and appreciated the references to other related books she recommends. She gives useful and practical information on preparing for your baby. Her writing style feels personal and direct, like she truly wants you specifically to have the very best as a woman and mother. I completely recommend this book!!”
