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 as a midwife.

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.
