My mother, Angelikah, birthed eight children naturally, her last three at home, unassisted by doctor or midwife. She has deeply inspired me. My own experiences of birth have been: a beautiful birth by candlelight in my bedroom; and an induced birth in hospital with my baby born ‘blue’, and spending the first few days of life attached to all sorts of machines in NICU. My book The Birthkeepers: reclaiming an ancient tradition is a book I wish had been ingrained into me before I became a mother. The influences around us play a huge role in birth. “Positive birth stories only, please, my baby is listening” should be worn on t-shirts by all pregnant women.
