Your rules. You decide. It’s not about you persuading caregivers, it’s about them giving you options and you deciding what’s best for you! You CAN have a positive experience with interventions if they’re needed. HOWEVER, it’s about knowing your options, taking control and making the best decisions for you.

“Hello, just want to thank you for everything you post on this page, it really influenced my birth and allowed me to birth, my way! Because of my IVF baby, consultants wanted to sweep me at 39 weeks (I declined). Consultants wanted to induce me 2 days after my IVF predicted due date (I declined). They rearranged my induction to 5 days after due date, but guess what, my baby came spontaneously 4 days after due date and I had the most amazing water birth with gas and air 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 I wouldn’t have had the confidence to decline interventions if I hadn’t seen this page. I also would’ve taken consultant’s “advice” thinking it was best for me and my baby. Thank you very much, I’ll be forever grateful xxxxxx”

No matter who you are, what your past life or current life entails it’s safe to know that YOU can influence with the power of the mind and when you do, magical things really do start to happen!

Much love
Emma aka The Naked Doula
