Hello ladies! (and gentlemen) what we have here is a collection of all the positive natural birth stories myself and other members of board of have found helpful or inspirational or just plain interesting. All the stories are broken down into categories to make it easier for you searching what you're looking for. Next to some of the stories are little notes just to give you a better understanding of what you might find.
Please feel free to share not only your story with us by posting a link to the page. If you've found a story on BnB that meant a lot to you that isn't on this page please share that link with us also. In addition if you find a story outside of BnB and you get permission from the mother please share the link with us in a post. Happy reading!
pimento1979 - My birth story- the arrival of Eva [Excellent story told in a such a truthful manner. Waters broke early, used acupuncture to help contractions along. Also declined induction and antibiotics. Ended up in hospital in the end after a long labour at home but still managed to deliver naturally!]
If it's in the public domain it's fine to link to I'd imagine. On BnB you have to be a member to access Birth Announcements and Stories so as long as you link to the story rather than copy and paste it, that will still meant that only those with the correct access can read it.
Feel free to use mine as a natural hospital one. I feel that, even though circumstances changed, we managed to keep it positive. It's in my signature where it says "sometimes homebirthing is a state of mind."
This is a brilliant idea Jenni! I've found lately that I've actually been avoiding the birth announcements section because I don't want to fill my mind with more negative and traumatic birth stories, so this would be perfect for me to come to read some really positive stories.
Hopefully mine will be able to be used here soon enough!
