Big news for me here is that after, what feels like, a very long time in the pipeline my new booklet has a publishing day! So you are cordially invited to join me in raising a glass to the divine energy of birth which has been my inspiration and my muse in the creation of: A Birth Path, stages & states of consciousness on Thursday 1st September 2016
This slim booklet describes the birthing process in nine steps to raise awareness of what mother, baby and attending father experience during this miraculous life transition. It delves into the physical, spiritual and energetical to bring light to the conscious and subconscious aspects of the integrative beauty of birth. It went out to three reviewers for back cover words and I could hardly believe it when they all wrote back such lovely things. It was too much to fit everything on the back cover but this is what they said:
A Birth Path, Stages and States by doula Hazel Tree presents a new way of looking at childbirth, not just for women seeking radical alternatives, but for everyone who believes that birth goes best when left to unfold on it’s own. The concepts are spiritual, physiological and almost poetic. Just the names of the chapters tell you a story.
Hearing the Call, Beginning the Journey, Crossing the Threshold, Reaching the Summit….and more. Beautiful writing.

‘I Like it!
Here is a book that offers one alternative to the medical model’s tendency to want to measure and fix birth. Reading it and experiencing its teaching will prepare you to create your own birth story…

This is a soulful book, which will be a rich resource for mothers and fathers to be, as well as birth professionals.
Hazel Tree’s passion for the birth journey shines through A Birth Path. Her voice is confident and clear, especially as she introduces information about brain waves and their effect on birth. But A Birth Path gives much more than information. It is a map to a wondrous land, written by an experienced traveller.
