In this section of our website you can read stories about other parents’ experiences of homebirth. Pregnancy and birth stories are a great way to learn about situations similar or different to your own. We’d love you to send us your own story to share with others.
The joy of having a homebirth is that your birth can be unique to you and your family in a way that isn’t always possible in a hospital. Our homebirth stories tell of women who made this birthing journey at home; with the surroundings, objects and people they love around them. These are women who have followed their dream about how they wanted to bring their baby into the world.
Birth is joyful, intense, emotional, demanding and life-changing… all at once. The home environment is uniquely placed to naturally allow birth to enfold at its own pace, in its own way. In these homebirth stories women tell their experiences of first meeting their baby – sometimes intense, sometimes harrowing, sometimes with unexpected twists and turns, and always life changing. There’s nothing quite like a woman’s personal telling of her own birth story.
