Practical Guides to Labour & Birth

I have written a series of practical guides for labour & birth to accompany my antenatal classes and 1:1 consultations with expectant parents. I have now made all 16 titles available to download.

These guides are based on first-hand experience, parent experiences and latest research – they have been designed to prepare you well for the reality of labour and birth and to encourage you to think about your options.

I have worked with expectant parents since 2002 and I listen to and learn from every parent I work with – this has a huge impact on my practice and it has enabled me to create a range of labour & birth handbooks which are straight-forward, realistic, practical and beneficial.

I hope you find them useful and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries.
