Birth Stories

I’ve been on a little high this week after attending my wonderful friend and colleague’s birth. It was such an honour to be there and see her being so strong and courageous, I feel all warm and tingly when I think of it. As a midwife I watch women becoming mothers in front of my very eyes as their babies are born and often wonder how will they find this incredible journey they are about to embark on.

It’s got me thinking. I love a birth story, probably because I’m a midwife and a little birth obsessed, but I have feeling there’s a lot of you out there who also love a birth story too. Am I right?

I’ve decided to start a weekly blog post called ‘Birth Story of The Week‘ starting on Monday. ALL types of births are welcome and I really do mean that. It’s more about how you felt during the whole event. It doesn’t matter if it was last month, last year or 5 years ago. I can remember my first daughter’s birth almost 6 years ago still very clearly. I will post a different story every week. Oh and any special photo you would like to accompany it with would be great!

So if you feel you want to share your experience please email me at Thanks

Here are two photos from both my births to get you inspired. You can read my birth stories here
