Positive Birth Stories for Every Woman

Sharing is caring!

This is a collection of links to positive birth stories. Oral tradition and storytelling was an integral part of birth preparation for our ancestors. Women passed on their knowledge and childbirth experiences to the younger generation in hopes of guiding, inspiring and remembering.

I loved reading and listening to natural birth stories during my pregnancies. It helped me feel connected to other women and learn that there are so many ways to achieve a natural birth.

Each and Every Birth is Unique

Through reading birth stories I gained a tremendous amount of respect for all the mothers of the world. We are each on our own journey of discovery. We can learn so much about the birth process through listening and reading the experiences of other mothers.

No matter how you choose to birth, or where you choose to birth, birth stories can provide you with inspiration and motivation to achieve the birth you want.
