? Giving birth naturally

Giving Birth Naturally
is about making informed choices
and enjoying parenthood...

Scared of giving birth naturally? We can help with that!

Want what's best for you and your baby? We do too.

Want an empowering, affirming, positive birth experience for your family? Giving birth naturally can be an incredible experience. I firmly believe that a great pregnancy and a positive birth experience should be the norm rather than the exception! We are here to help you make informed choices about the best evidence based care for you and your baby on your road to birth, and beyond.

So you think you might want a natural birth? Well, you don't have to leave that completely to chance. Preparation can make a massive difference in the birth experience for you and your baby! If you have any questions you'd like answered, comments or ideas to share, please drop me a note and let me know! I'd love to hear from you...

Informed Choice is the key to empowered parenting.
