The Home Birth Movement Bermuda Dec 2018

“In an effort to transform Bermudaʼs complicated relationship with birth, this book dives into the countryʼs history of midwifery, the rise of childbirth hospitalisation and medicalisation, and the ideological challenges facing childbirth and home birth rights currently.

“Through the personal and emotional stories of Bermudian mothers and fathers, this book artfully weaves together the voices that initiated and perpetuated the home birth movement in Bermuda at the turn of the century – a movement that continues to grow.

“Sophia Cannonier is a Bermudian mother of three, Certified Midwife Assistant, Birth Doula CD[DONA], Birthing from Within Mentor, Pilates and Yoga Teacher Trainer, Feldenkrais Practitioner, and Director and Founder of LOTUS: Mind Body Spirit and Wellness Center. Sophia has birthed all three of her children at home without medical intervention, and she continues to advocate locally and internationally for the protection and expansion of maternity and childbirth options.”
