Having a record of such a monumental time of your life can be invaluable. And Motherhood has taught me that sharing stories is vital. Every mum (and her birth partner) has a story to tell. Some are funny and some are embarrassing. Some are shocking and some go completely to plan. But if we give mums space to tell them with openness and honesty, it could greatly improve the outcome and circumstances of others.
Will you share your Birth Story with me? I want to encourage you to write one, and to inform and inspire other pregnant women to have the birth they want.
Send your birth story to firstname.lastname@example.org for a feature.
