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

Heartily sick of the commercialisation of childbirth, I am inspired to make these online pages freely available, independent of adverts and dedicated to anyone keen to manage, or help others manage, birth without the heavy artillery of epidurals and hypnotic/sedative injections.

I also 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.

  1. Well done Jude. That was an explicit display of your passion and demonstrates techniques in an easily digestible manner…..Yet to see a doctor as passionate as you are Jude- really impressed as always. Hope lots of people read this and benefit from this.
