Birthing Books and Birthing Babies? What’s the Connection?

The AUTHOR FEST FUNDRAISER on October 5, 2019, is an event to celebrate Writers, Authors and Publishing and supports Babies and Families too. In my world, Birthing Books and Birthing Babies are connected in a few key ways. 

My profession is book publishing and storytelling and as an international author success coach, I offer guidance and support to aspiring author clients who want to share their stories with the world by birthing their books. Families create new chapters in their family’s lives when they welcome new children to their world. Each is a very personal experience that requires courage and vulnerability and a bit of the fear factor sprinkled in for good measure. Books and children inspire us and others, with wonder and joy. Each experience changes your life forever and asks us each to step up into new roles in society.  I am passionate about family and books – birthing babies and birthing books. 

It is my hope this inspirational, innovative and creative fundraising event allows me to bring the best to the Lakeshore Hospital, while supporting the best in literary excellence.  It’s my absolute pleasure to create a fundraising event to shine the light on one to support the life-changing work of another. 

Birthing Books

When creating a new book, my signature Pathways to Publishing 5-Process Method emcompasses five key elements for a successful and smooth writing and publishing process. 

  1. COMMIT to making the decision to make it a reality. 
  2. WRITE with inspiration, discipline and determination. 
  3. DESIGN your forthcoming book by editing and stylizing the interior and world class exterior. 
  4. PROMOTE the book before you publish it to let the world know the birthing time is just around the corner!  
  5. PUBLISH the work of art that is your baby, and let the world welcome it and learn from your words, wisdom and expertise. 

Birthing Babies

The birth of a child is a life-changing event, and as such, having a positive, worry-free, and nurturing experience during the actual birthing process makes all the difference. 

At the Lakeshore General Hospital, the Birthing Center provides just that with THEIR five key areas of focus for a memorable birthing experience.

  1. A FAMILY INVOLVEMENT is encouraged and welcomed in the bigger space offered.
  2. A PROFESSIONAL, non-invasive, yet SUPPORTIVE staff provides a pleasant ENVIRONMENT.
  3. SUPPORTING a mother’s SOCIAL NEEDS by involving families in the birthing process..
  4. Meeting EMOTIONAL NEEDS with family involvement. 
  5. A mother’s SPIRITUAL NEEDS are attended to, thus creating an unforgettably comfortable and heartwarming experience!
