9. Giving Birth Under Rocket Fire

av The Happy Birthway Podcast | Publicerades 5/23/2021

Fewer deaths doesn’t make it ok to fire rockets at civilians. It’s time to tell the truth about what’s going on in Israel and the far-reaching effects that Hamas’s missile attacks have on their targets.  Hear about what it’s like to give birth when your country is under attack. Sarah Amar, an American emigre to Israel, tells us about her experience having a c-section an hour before hundreds of rockets began raining on her hospital. Although her entry into motherhood came at the worst time, she manages to laugh and look at the bright side of this horrific experience.    Stand With Us is an organization that fights antisemitism and supports Israel around the world.
