Reclaiming an ancient tradition
My mother, Angelikah, birthed eight children naturally, her last three at home, unassisted by doctor or midwife. She has deeply inspired me. My own experiences of birth have been: a beautiful birth by candlelight in my bedroom; and an induced birth in hospital with my baby born ‘blue’, and spending the first few days of life attached to all sorts of machines in NICU. My book The Birthkeepers: reclaiming an ancient tradition is a book I wish had been ingrained into me before I became a mother. The influences around us play a huge role in birth. “Positive birth stories only, please, my baby is listening” should be worn on t-shirts by all pregnant women.

Just felt in my heart this morning to send you this mail because of the inspiration I got from reading your book. The Birthkeepers was just enormous in the birth of my daughter, Uma Grace, who is now five weeks old. Your book really did change my life, and to say I am grateful for coming across it and you is a HUGE understatement. So all I can say is Thank you!
Thank you for the work you do, and the words you write. You’re amazing!
Blessings and Love,

Where to start. I have so much heart to share with you as your book became my birth Bible throughout my first and second pregnancies. Now as my sister prepares to birth herself I have searched for your book again and now with such love in my heart I share your wisdom to another woman through her journey of producing life.
Thankyou, with such gratitude for your words, your teachings and for sharing with us things we already know but need a little guidance to find within.
With all my respect and humbleness,
