Thais Nye Derich

Thais Nye Derich’s new memoir—Second Chance: A Mother’s Quest for a Natural Birth after a Cesarean (She Writes Press, May 9, 2017)—tells a powerful story about her traumatic hospital delivery, and her decision post-cesarean to give birth naturally. Derich’s past work has been published in Salon, Literary Mama, Wild Violet Literary Magazine, Forge Journal, SFGate, and The San Francisco Examiner among others. A chapter of Second Chance was a finalist for the Creative Non-Fiction Magazine’s Baby Anthology. She's been interviewed on NPR, KPFA, and KRCB radio stations and speaks to groups big and small about her story and the intersection between birth and social justice. Thais lives just north of San Francisco in Marin County with her husband and two sons. She’s currently writing her second book – a postapocalyptic novel about the last baby girl on earth.
