mama, bare: birth stories

Breathe in. Breathe out. There is a story resting within you, growing warmer, ready to spill from your lips and your fingertips and turn the dark edges around you to light. Sharing a birth story is often the first step in healing your heart, sweet mama. And by sharing, you silently offer space for others to share, too. The healing starts with you. With your story. Here. Now.

I am now accepting submissions for the second volume of Mama, Bare. This collection will feature birth stories, from mothers of all sorts (from surrogacy, to hospital, home births and beyond). All mothers are welcome. Please use the form below to submit. 


A few guidelines to keep in mind: There is currently no end date to submissions. I will change this page when submissions are closed. stories should be edited, but no formatting is required - simply copy & paste the text below. please limit stories to 1500 words or less.
