Mountainside Hospital will host an appearance and book signing by Debra Pascali-Bonaro, the co-author of “Orgasmic Birth: Your Guide to a Safe, Satisfying and Pleasurable Birth,” at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, September 15.  Admission is free and copies of the book will be available for the discounted price of $10.  Advanced registration is requested.  Call (888) 973-4MSH to RSVP.
Debra Pascali-Bonaro is an internationally renowned “doula” or non-medical expert on childbirth.  Her book “Orgasmic Birth,” published in June by Rodale Press and co-authored by Elizabeth Davis, details techniques for making childbirth more pleasurable, and challenges stereotypes and myths.  It is a follow-up to her previously released, critically acclaimed documentary film of the same name that was featured on the ABC News show “20/20.”
Both the book and film versions of “Orgasmic Birth” have been endorsed by physicians and midwives.  One of the most prominent advocates of “Orgasmic Birth” is Dr. Christine Northup, the best-selling author of “Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom” and “The Wisdom of Menopause,” who is also known for her appearances on Oprah and PBS Specials.
