Giving Birth
by Mary Motley Kalergis
Publisher's Description
Images of pregnancy, the birth experience, and the spirituality of the birth process are the focus of this classic book of photographs. For years, renowned documentary photographer Mary Motley Kalergis photographed dozens of births, including countless home and hospital births attended by both doctors and midwives.

The resulting book, Giving Birth, was given limited distribution in its first publication but over the years quietly gained a wide-spread following among birth educators and expectant mothers. Especially revealing were the images of husbands and children who were present with the laboring mother during the birth experience, which was unusual at the time.

Re-issued and available again, the documentary classic Giving Birth is a required resource for the expectant mother who wants to experience the full wonder of her pregnancy and childbirth. Ninety three pages, including seventy three black and white photographs.
