I am a mum of three boys and a baby girl. I experienced a very traumatic birth in a hospital for my first son in 2013. It was an instrumental delivery that left me feeling deeply ashamed. I felt as though I was just a number and that no one really cared. My baby boy was born with a heart defect and taken straight from me to NICU. We spent most of our first year in hospital together.
I absolutely knew there had to be another way. I threw myself in to learning everything about birth. My second son was born accidentally at home as I was too scared to go to hospital. My next two births were beautiful planned home births.
My deep desire is help other parents, so that they never feel alone as I did all those years ago.
