Enter to Win 3 Signed Copies of Local Author Mark Sloan, MD’s “Birth Day”

Washington Post's Nora Krug says,

“Given the subject, "Birth Day" has a natural audience in curious, new and expectant parents. But anyone interested in the complex and, yes, miraculous way we all make it into this world will find lots to wonder over and ponder here, too.”  (Read full review here.)
Enter to win by simply leaving a comment on this post with the name of the baby featured in the Birth Day excerpt on Dr. Sloan’s website.  The contest closes on December 22, 2009 at 4:00 pm.

Gift Local & Gift Meaningful

The universal subject of birth makes “Birth Day” the perfect gift. Win a copy or purchase the book at our local Copperfield’s Store.  You can also purchase “Birth Day” here.

The book will be a feature in the gift basket I am creating for my brother and sister-in-law who are expecting a little girl in March. I also leant a copy to my hair dresser who is expecting.  Dr. Sloan's explanations of "why birth is so hard" were eye opening and hysterical.  His stories shed a whole new light on my own past birth experience.  I especially love the way he affirms the concept of doula support in the birthing room. Dr. Sloan's insights as a labor coach and father are a must read for every expecting dad.  Even this experienced doctor worried about fainting and committed faux pauxs as his wife's birthing assistant. 

Stay tuned for an engaging full interview with Dr. Sloan, scheduled to post on the birth of the New Year.  

***For another exciting local gift purchase, consider supporting this star struck family's daughter.  Nineteen-year-old Claire Sloan's photography is currently on PacSun's T-shirts.  PacSun tracked down Claire and asked to print 10,000 shirts featuring one of her photos.  Claire's work is now on T-shirts across the nation. Get yours today!***

    Book seems well written and funny and also made me happy to have had a homebirth so that my girl came into our loving arms. Robert wasn't so lucky!
