Our aim is for you to use these real life positive birth stories to encourage yourself to be confident in your natural ability to give birth gently, to surround yourself with the sweetness
The innate ability of each woman to give birth guided by her body’s wisdom, with trusted attendants, in soft private spaces, has been largely taken over by the international billion dollar high-tech low-touch obstetrics industry. This ‘active management’ of childbirth alters the mix of hormones that evolution has provided to help ease mother andbaby through birth. Traumatic popular culture images, non-factual historical references andurban horror stories of childbirth reinforce birth-fear causing the very muscles designed for childbirth to constrict andtense. The result? Widespread ‘complications’ andunnecessary interventions leaving mothers andbabies traumatised andaffected.
What if we weren’t scared?
What if we knew pregnancy andgiving birth was the most normal natural thing on earth andmillions of women go through it without ‘complications’, fear or intervention?
What if we employed proven & safe techniques during pregnancy andchildbirth that enhanced our power to give birth naturally?
What if we were reminded that our bodies are perfectly designed to give birth?
Would this help change attitudes andtherefore childbirth?
I believe it would! Here, in the true experiences of women from across the globe you will find the evidence. Like women’s stories across the ages andcontinents, these stories will inform, entertain, inspire andkeep truth alive.
