Preparing for Birth
Birth is always an unknown, we cannot predict the outcome or know what may happen along the way, but I have found after three births that preparation goes a long way to increasing the chances of a positive birth experience, regardless of the type of birth. This can mean different things for each woman but is ultimately about developing self-trust and connecting to the innate bodily wisdom already inside of you.
It is my vision for every birthing woman to have a positive birth experience where YOU are in control of the birth of YOUR baby. With the right preparation, common knowledge of birth, understanding of the maternity system (and knowing your rights within this system), an appropriate set of skills, rest and relaxation, your chances of having a positive (and potentially ecstatic!) birth will be greatly enhanced.
I recommend Birthing Better birth preparation courses as this is the course I followed previous to my ecstatic birth experience! Comprehensive courses full of the wisdom of all the families who contributed towards them. They have courses for every type of birth with videos included so you can practice at home whenever suits you and your birthing partner.
Watch Birth Time
The award-winning documentary shining a light on the maternity system
What was your experience of birth? Did your birth happen to you or did you feel in control? Childbirth is a rite of passage; something that should be honoured and celebrated. When your experience of childbirth leaves you traumatised (physically, emotionally, or both), in despair or disappointed, its sets a precedent for how you enter motherhood. This HAS to change!
Every woman should have a positive experience of birth, it is vital for your wellbeing and that of your children. Birth Time is an incredible documentary of what birth was, what it is now and what it could be!
