Birth is the feminist issue no one is talking about. Milli Hill will discuss her new book with Vermont midwife Rebecca Price-Wood.
For too long women have been told, ‘a healthy baby is all that matters’. This book dares to say women matter too. Finally blasting the feminist spotlight into the labour ward, Milli Hill encourages women everywhere to stand and deliver, insisting that birth is no longer left off the list in discussions about female power, control and agency. From the importance of birth plans to your human rights in childbirth, and including birth stories from women across the world, this call-to-arms will help you find your voice, take an active role in your choices, and change the way you think about childbirth.

She is a columnist for Telegraph Women, a regular contributor to Mother&Baby magazine, and also writes for Guardian, ipaper, GoodtoKnow, and many others.
