There’s some thing about birth that sets me alight. This is a space for sharing that through teaching, writing, and advocacy.

You don’t have to be pregnant (or trying for a baby) to be a part of this space. All with an interest in birth are welcome – both here and at the local community workshops. I hope to meet you at one soon!

Birth

Free Community Workshops! Come learn about birth…

In this workshop we will dive deep into what birth REALLY looks like and how it really works. Indie Birth‘s birth education resources have been hugely popular in the online natural birth community, but we want to see more change, faster, and so have opened these shorter immersion sessions to make the most crucial information as accessible as possible.

This will be a multi-media, experiential learning event. My hope is that you will leave feeling fully immersed in what birth really looks like and feels like when we understand and respect the process. I also hope that you will leave with a stronger sense of what you want for your own birth (if you are planning one) and how you are going to get what you want and need for you and your baby.

Lap babies are always welcome, and children too if you feel like you’ll still be able to focus.

**Everyone who is interested is welcome – you do NOT need to be pregnant or planning to become pregnant to attend. I love when we have people of all ages, sexes, genders and backgrounds attend!**

Our next workshop will be 29 July 2017 at Miss Tina’s in Sunderland, from 10am to 1pm. Full details and tickets here: FREE COMMUNITY BIRTH WORKSHOP.

Watch this space for future events.

About

Hello! Whether you are here as an expectant parent or as someone who is supporting others in birth (or considering this path!), you are welcome.

This is a space for learning and for advocacy in birth.

There is no one right way to give birth.  There are probably as many ‘right’ ways to give birth as there are people on this planet. What is true, however, is that without accurate information, choice is restricted.  In other words, if we don’t know what questions to ask or what our choices are, we don’t have any.

Knowing how birth works can help us make the best choices for ourselves and our own babies according to our own situation and circumstances. My mission is to make this information more freely and easily accessible to all.

A little about me…

I’m Rebecca Wright, mama to four beautiful children aged 2 to 14. For the past 14+ years, birth (and all things tangentially related!) has been a source of fascination for me. After the birth of my first child in 2003, I trained as a breastfeeding counsellor with La Leche League. But I soon found that while I loved helping mamas and babies to breastfeed, it wasn’t enough. So much was happening before that point of contact: birth impacts infant feeding and mothering experiences (and this is true for fathers as well).

In 2007, I attended my first ‘doula preparation workshop’, Paramana Doula, with Michel Odent and Liliana Lammers. I went in with a fascination for birth, and deep desire to learn more. This workshop changed me. I emerged with more than a passion for birth: I emerged with a deep knowing that this information must be freely shared, and the critical importance of all families being supported in their birth choices and birth experiences.

I joined Doula UK  shortly afterwards. In April 2010, I became a recognised birth and postnatal doula.  I also certified as a Birth Doula and Childbirth Educator with Childbirth International, working as a Trainer for CBI for both these programmes from 2011 to 2015.

I am a member of the Indie Birth Network.
