Stand & Delivery





A really funny and informative way to help you prepare well for the birth of your baby.

Birth stories, accepting and dealing with any fear, what to do to take control and help yourself during labour.

It includes some basic birth physiology so you know what needs to work in your body and how it works  well to bring you your baby and it includes birth stories about:

  • Waterbirths at home and in hospital
  • Induction
  • Breech
  • Epidurals
  • Caesareans and VBACS


It is written in a humourous and no nonsense style and it normalises the intensity, power and uniqueness of birth.
