Listening to a good birth story is powerful. It’s a simple message - ‘I did it, so can you’ – and it inspires courage. We connect pregnant women with mothers who have good birth stories to share – and link by link, are building a big beautiful chain of birth confidence. Come and become a part of it.


We also have a book. How to Have a Baby is filled with exactly the kind of grounded, practical mother-gathered guidance women need to know. It’s full of all manner of things that are going to help you get ready for labour and the early days with a newborn – providing you with a clear path to having a really positive birth experience yourself.

'Absolutely loved this book. Very informative and full of no-nonsense, real and realistic advice about giving birth. A fantastic resource for preparing for a positive birth experience, whatever kind of birth you have. On top of that, it is a beautiful book with gorgeous imagery.  A joy to read.' Noobug, Amazon Customer 

'I adored this book and can’t stop recommending it to people. I read it when pregnant with my second child and learnt so much, despite having giving birth before. It made so much sense! I learnt about all the stages of labour and was so much better prepared for my second birth. I loved the suggestions of lavender and hot water bottles, and other tips.  It made me feel nurtured and excited about the birth. A very special book!' Jo 

'This is a fab book for all expectant parents. It’s easy to read with short and sweet chapters complete with delicious recipes, top tips and really useful information about pregnancy birth and the postpartum period. I cannot recommend it enough. Teresa
