    My first was at a midwife- led unit, but for both births I was in water, and I have positive memories of each one. The other point that bothered me is related to the above. For the most part I agree. Martina's story - Annie's birth My birth story started in the middle of the night, five days before my due date. Gabrielle presents a non-medical approach to childbirth that emphasises empowering and asserting confidence in women and their support partners.

    Breastfeeding - getting good support When a woman decides not to breastfeed, there is no need, at all, to justify that decision. I assumed it would be in hospital but through a series of interactions I signed up with my local home birth team, probably the best decision I made. Suzanne's story - a third baby Tues 27th: Packed orders at barn after ridiculous bank holiday sale, had lots of strong Braxton hicks, think turning to proper contractions later in the day. Written by a mom R. It also de-mystifies and questions the fear surrounding birth today and covers so many important labour and birth issues that are often overlooked.

He definitely carries the freak flag for natural childbirth and that may turn some people off, however he provides lots of good information on when drugs and cesareans are probably a good idea.

Though the Breech Baby Handbook is very clear about the fact that cesareans are sometimes safest and there is no pressure to choose vaginal birth, I also want to bring back Vaginal Breech Birth so that those women who choose it can do so safely and easily.

Katie's story - Noah's birth As the proud owner of 'childbearing hips', I'd never considered the possibility of an assisted birth The information is beautifully intertwined with stories from the heart, and includes information and quotes from other prominent childbirth educators.
