Lessons of Labor

LESSONS OF LABOR: One Woman’s Self-Discovery Through Birth & Motherhood

Rather than giving advice on how to labor or how to parent, Lessons of Labor consistently offers the message that a woman can grow through the challenges that life presents and learn to trust herself. Available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, or at your local bookstore.


“Julia Aziz learned much beyond what labor and birth can be like; she guides us through her musings on the lessons gained from her labors–about life as a woman, life partner, mother, and human being.”
Penny Simkin, author of The Birth Partner, co-founder of DONA International

“An enlightening read for new parents.”
Foreword Reviews

“Aziz’s lessons touch the lives of every woman, no matter their walk in life.”

“What sets this book apart from other parenting titles is that it’s not about giving advice or focused on imparting how-to knowledge.”
Portland Book Review

“This book is essential reading for anyone who is a mother, has been mothered or is about to embark on the journey of motherhood.
