This page contains links to some resources that I recommend to clients and their families to support them on their journey.
Birthing for Blokes
There’s a wealth of information out there for expectant mothers on pregnancy and birth, but so often the father has been left out of the conversation, BUT that has now changed. Male midwife Mark Harris has filled that vacuum, drawing on his decades of experience working with couples as they make the transition to being new parents.
If you have been wondering what to do now she is pregnant, or how you will prepare yourself to be as supportive as you can be while she is giving birth, this program will equip to be the very best you can be.
AIMS is the Association for Improvements in the Maternity Services and provides a wealth of information, including your rights in pregnancy and birth, and information about conditions and complications you may experience during your pregnancy.
The aim of this blog to stimulate thinking and share knowledge, evidence and views on birth and midwifery.
Run by a mother, midwife and educator. Excellent information for both mothers and professionals.
Birth Without Fear
“Birth is not a competition. A Birth Without Fear is different for each mother. How one woman births doesn’t make her better than another. How one woman births doesn’t make her less than another. It is HER birth and hers alone.” ~January
A fantastic page full of inspiration and support with blog articles and birth stories run by January – a passionate mother of 5, birthed in different ways – cesearean, vaginal, and unassisted!
