The telling of birth stories serves so many important purposes. As a mother, remembering the birth story of your child brings you right back to the moment when you first met that new life. For others, the hearing of a birth story can provide, support and inspiration to help them on their own birth journey.
Over the years we have thankfully received many birth stories from women all over the world. As you read the stories below, you will be struck at just how real they are. Birth is a time when women can be who they truly are. And that truth is what comes through in the stories. That truth will make you laugh… and it will make you cry. But most likely, it will help you feel that we are all connected. That as birthing women, we are both on our own journey and on a common journey together.
