Since the moment I picked up the book Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth I fell in love with reading and hearing other women’s birth stories. And after becoming a Mother myself I am finding those stories are even MORE important!
We all know that having a child will change us, but what frequently isn’t discussed enough is the change that happens during childbirth and the experiences we have bringing our children into this world.
Here is a safe space to share your real and raw birth story! Please if you had a rough experience DON’T sugar coat it! Historically we women would share our experiences in order to learn what to expect and in this day and age that shouldn’t be changed just because society wants us to fit some kind of superwoman mold. Be real, be raw, I promise the only thing I edit for is grammar & spelling 😉 I want your story to stay yours,
YES! YOUR STORY MATTERS! & YES I WOULD LOVE TO PUBLISH IT.
I welcome all birth stories from women & their partners
- of all ages
- of all cultures / geographical locations
- from all eras of birth (60+ years ago or 1 day all are welcome)
I love to share other women’s birth stories with the world. If you would like to contribute to the campaign I’ve started to get birth stories of all types and from all locations out there to help and encourage other women to pursue the birth of their dreams then you are on the right page.
If you’d like to, feel free to check out my birth stories (Our Oldest, or Our Littlest) or check out my recommendations for how to write your birth story then get started by completing the form below & we will be in touch shortly.
Please note that I reserve the right to edit stories for clarity, grammar, and privacy reasons. This means that if you name a medical staff or child in your story I can and will remove the name or give them a nickname to keep their privacy safe.
If you have requested the option to submit a photo to accompany your story I will be in touch with you to confirm that all people in the photo have agreed to publish the photo. Please do NOT use images that include medical staff’s faces or other identifying shots of support personnel during the delivery. As mentioned above I prefer to respect everyone’s right to privacy.
