Welcome to where you can find all sorts of techniques, ideas, tips and suggestions for Active Birth and beyond.

I know first hand the life-long benefits of positive birth experience and hope to share what I’ve learned from lots of doula training, study days, conferences as well as my years spent at the midwifery coalface.

The media largely portrays birth as dangerous and frightening.  Whilst health services are currently disproportionately obsessed with its associated risk.  There is an alternative birth narrative, that of birth being a normal bodily function that generally works very well given the right environment and a lack of unnecessary intervention…however that doesn’t get enough air time.

This site aims to give air time to the alternatives.  Here’s hoping for more positive and empowering birth experiences.
