New book released any minute!

We are excited to announce Joyful Birth: More Childbirth Stories Told by Doulas will be released this month, November 2012!

We wanted to share the beautiful cover and some wonderful words of praise:

"Take your time with this book. Read and savor and learn from each of these joyous birth stories -- each one different, but all touching and personal! In a time when the stories that most of us read and see in the media are frightening and sensationalized, here is a collection of inspiring and reassuring accounts. This, the second anthology published by “The Lisas,” is as full of wisdom and inspiration as their first, Bearing Witness. It should be read by every expecting parent and those who care for them! Enjoy!"
-Penny Simkin, author of The Birth Partner: A Guide to Childbirth for Dads, Doulas, and All Other Labor Companions.

"Joyful Birth challenges the reader to abandon all preconceived notions about what it means to experience a joyful birth. The authors have woven together a variety of birth-related stories that celebrate the joy and the transformative power of birth. Joyful Birth will make a treasured addition to the birth libraries of doulas and others who are passionate about birth."
- Ann Douglas, author, The Mother of All Pregnancy Books

"In order to interpret this anthology of joyful birth stories, I explored scientific databases via the keyword “Joy”. It appears that this term is almost unknown compared with “anxiety”, “fear”, “aggressiveness”, “psychological distress” and “depression”. We must be grateful to Lisa & Lisa for bringing in limelight what is still a neologism in scientific circles." 
- Michel Odent, MD, author, Childbirth in the Age of Plastics, etc. 

Bearing Witness is now officially a Series! :) We look forward to many more books in the future.
