Published in Another Book!



Yesterday, a flat package arrived in the mail. I tore open the envelope and found the book, Don't Cut Me Again! True Stories About Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC) Edited by Angela Hoy, owner of Booklocker and Writer's Weekly, the book is a collection of birth stories centered around women birthing vaginally after previously having a cesarean birth. About a year ago, I had submitted the story of my youngest son's homebirth. My two older children were born via cesarean. The story is included in the book, along with pictures of my kids.

Angela also runs a VBAC blog here: Angela's VBAC Blog.

A few months ago, I received my copy of On The Fence: The Hidden World of the Hard of Hearing, written by Mark Drolsbaugh. I had submitted a chapter in that book as well, highlighting my experience of growing up hard of hearing and becoming deaf.

Someday, in my lifetime, I'd like to write my own book.

If you have enough chapters in enough books, couldn't you pull them all together to make one of your own? ;) The Collected Writings...

This is so weird. I was just researching VBACs the other day for my next pregnancy. I found that the chances of uterine rupture were less then 1%. Which is not what my doctor would have me believe. I think he just wants the money. The risk still scares me a little, but I think I may pick this book up to calm my fears.

Also, congrats!
