Sevonna Brown, Gender Justice and Human Rights Project Manager with Mama Black: Stories, News and Analysis by Black Women's Blueprint shares her thoughts here, With Harp and Sword: Trauma, Survivorship, and Reproductive Health (August 18, 2016). Brown writes, “This book acts as the wings for a doula who is struggling in mid-air to support survivors (or who is a survivor herself). The guide is just as much a how-to companion for every full spectrum doula, as it is a personal narrative of trauma and recovery. Fairley writes on experiencing both trauma and resilience as a triumphant introduction into rebirthing oneself, recommitting one’s life’s work, and resisting retraumatization.”
