Birthkeeping

Keeping birth sacred by supporting you to achieve the natural birth you desire

Birthkeeping

Through my experience working as a midwife, having a hospital birth, a homebirth and 2 freebirths at home have I come to realise the most important person to be present at a birth, is a woman connected deeply to her body.

A woman connected to her ancestral knowledge and wisdom that lives within her body and soul.

And that woman to be the pregnant and birthing woman.

I see my role, as a woman who embodies this wisdom, to guide the pregnant and birthing woman into deeper connection with herself. To access her own body wisdom and ancestral knowledge to experience the birth her soul desires. To be a pillar in the room that trusts birth, trusts the body, trusts divinity.

I have chosen the title Birthkeeper as I see my role as one in keeping birth sacred. A protector of physiological birth. A space holder for women to birth on their own terms.

I choose not to support women planning a hospital birth as I believe women are unable to have a true physiological birth in a hospital.
