Birth Stories Needed

Can anyone help Hannah collect birth stories? Here is her request:

My name is Hannah Hastings and I'm a senior at College of the Atlantic working on my senior thesis. The purpose of this project is to collect childbirth stories and develop a comprehensive overview of women’s experiences of pregnancy, labor and parenthood. As an aspiring midwife, who has not yet had children of my own, I must look for other ways to gain insight in to the thoughts, questions, and decisions an expecting mother faces and the options, choices and resources available to her. If you are an expecting or new parent or work with families who are expecting, I’d love to hear from you! Please send me your written birth stories, a work of art, a poem, how your birth impacted you or anything you would like to share. I’m also happy to speak with you over the phone. If you are interested in participating in this project you can reach me by email at:, by mail at Hannah Hastings, 105 Eden Street Bar Harbor, ME 04609 or telephone at 608 606 9977.

Thank you for considering and I look forward to hearing from you.
