I fired my private Obstetrician while in active labour during my VBAC and it was the most liberating and empowering thing I could have done

I really feel like my baby and body did all the hard work and literally all I had to do was relax and breathe

On the 28th of April at almost 35 weeks pregnant we had a wonderful surprise when we welcomed our baby girl into the world. It certainly wasn’t in the way we expected and yet given the chance I wouldn’t change a thing. I had just finished up work and was enjoying my first week on …

Although my first birth was ‘successful’ I deeply missed having an advocate and was left feeling bullied, disempowered and like I had been robbed of the beautiful experience I had heard about. Going into my second …
