Independent Publisher Pinter & Martin Acquire Pregnancy and Birth Guide Book by Milli Hill, Founder of The Positive Birth Movement

Pinter & Martin, leading publisher of specialist birth, parenting and health titles is pleased to announce the acquisition of The Positive Birth Book, A New Approach To Pregnancy, Birth And The Early Weeks by Milli Hill, founder of The Positive Birth Movement.

The Positive Birth Book will celebrate birth and equip women with the knowledge and resources to plan the birth they want.  With the aim of challenging negativity and fear of childbirth, inspiring women with confidence and offering the latest evidence-based information, The Positive Birth Book will introduce cutting edge and empowering ideas about childbirth, directly into the mainstream.

Milli Hill says, ‘Through the success of The Positive Birth Movement, I’ve learnt that there is a huge appetite among women for more positive information about birth. Women are tired of the negativity and horror stories, and they just want to hear a new narrative, some positive information about how strong their bodies are, about what birth is actually like, and about how they really can do it.  It will be quite clear from the outset that what happens to you in birth is not ‘pot luck’, and that there are many things you can do to maximise your chances of having a really great experience.

I’m so excited about this book, and particularly honoured that Pinter & Martin have agreed to publish it, since they also publish so many leading voices in the birth arena, heroes of mine such as Sheila Kitzinger, Ina May Gaskin and Michel Odent.’

Martin Wagner, Managing Director at Pinter & Martin says, We are thrilled to be publishing this fresh approach to childbirth by the founder of the Positive Birth Movement, which is taking the birth world by storm.’

The Positive Birth Book by Milli Hill is due for publication by Pinter & Martin in Spring 2017 as a paperback original £14.99.

About The Positive Birth Movement

The Positive Birth Movement was founded by Milli Hill in 2012. Her idea – to grow a network of free to attend birth discussion groups where women could challenge the way they think and feel about childbirth – became an overnight viral sensation. There are now over 400 PBM groups worldwide with over 250 in the UK. The PBM global network of both real-life and online groups spreads positivity about childbirth and challenges the current epidemic of fear and misinformation. Milli regularly speaks at childbirth conferences and is a columnist for Telegraph Women. Her book Water Birth: Stories to Inspire and Inform was published by Lonely Scribe in January 2015.
