An inclusive and sympathetic workbook for anyone wishing to create personal rituals and celebrations that mark the many different events surrounding all aspects of becoming a parent. As well as the anticipated topics of pregnancy, birth and motherhood Birthrites also explores Becoming A Father; Adoption; and Miscarriage among other emotive subjects.
Jackie Singer emphasises the importance of ritual and ceremony; marking life-changing events, and sharing this experience with others. The suggested ceremonies are varied in nature and never dogmatic, ensuring wide-ranging appeal. Some simply involve quiet contemplation, whereas others can include a specific activity. Throughout the book, Jackie emphasises the individuality and adaptability of ceremony; nothing is set in stone. The author’s personal experiences are interspersed with quotes and real-life accounts from a wide range of contributors.
Jackie provides reassurance and support in this relaxed, friendly guide, and achieves a considered balance between practicality and sensitivity. Birthrites identifies an ancient facet of human activity forgotten by some of us, and overlooked by many. Far too often in modern life, the importance of pausing for thought is disregarded. .
