After a nervous wait for a covid-19 delayed package, from my publisher, the kind press, the first proof of my first book has arrived in my hands.

More Than a Healthy Baby: finding Strength Growth After Birth Trauma is 362 grams and beautiful. Printed in Australia.

The cover was designed and hand painted by Elle Lynn. We went over many ideas for designs using symbols for trauma and growth. I’ll leave it until sales are open to go into all the fine details. However, one thing I was clear on was that I did not want a tokenistic image of a sad woman looking out a window.

The book will be up for pre-sale soon and available in all good book stores (online and brick and mortar). We are well on track for an official release date of December 8th, and in the meantime I have a beautiful photo shoot planned for next week.
