Lessons of Labor

Imagine that you’ve just had your baby, and you can’t sleep because you’re so excited. What do you do? Do you grab a pencil and paper and write down every last detail about the labor and birth experience?

That’s what Julia Aziz did. Three times, in fact: once for each baby.

Years later, Julia compiled her writing alongside learnings she gathered from 20+ years working with parents as a social worker and teacher. The result was a book of four-page chapters that each include a birth story, a lesson, and guidance on applying the lesson in daily life.

Here’s where you can buy your copy: Lessons of Labor: One Woman’s Self-Discovery through Birth and Motherhood
