I Was Born With It,
Why Can't I Birth With It?
During my first pregnancy I wondered why
so many amazing women in my life had given birth via caesarean sections. Many, I knew, had circumstances that gave them no other option, but the sheer number of c-sections around me was alarming.
I looked to my mother and grandmother, both
of whom birthed 4 children, naturally, drug free, and with relatively short labours.
What had changed in the last 30 years?
I was being prepared for interventions from the beginning of my pregnancy but the more I read and researched, the less I understood my need for them. I was healthy, my baby was healthy
and I came from a long line of women who had birthed naturally and (relatively) easily.
I was born with this same innate wisdom to birth. I was born with the same hormonal make up.
I was born from and with the same uterus.
The only differences I could find...
the model of care,
and the belief.

It's about both of you
There is a lot of focus on mothers (and rightly so!), but birth can be a daunting time for partners too. We give them lots of tips and tricks to help them, to help mum, relax throughout the labour & birth.

Knowledge is EmPOWERment
They say a little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing... That's fine, because we give you lots! Making informed choices and asking the right questions helps you stay in control and feel empowered throughout your pregnancy and birth. We arm you with an understanding of the birth process, a knowledge of the interventions you might face, and how you can keep a positive mindset no matter what challenges you might face along the way.
Time to just breathe
Pregnancy these days can seem like a blur of tests and hospitals, creating stress at regular intervals about various complications you likely don't have . It can be difficult to focus on the
most important things - your baby and yourself. Take time out of the medical jungle to breathe, meditate and contemplate your calm, positive birth. Bring the joy and peace back to your pregnancy. It's how it's supposed to be...
