Welcome to the new home of Unassisted Childbirth!
This site is based on the belief that childbirth is inherently safe and relatively painless provided we don’t live in poverty, and do not interfere either physically or psychologically.
Drugs, machinery, and medical personnel are not only unnecessary in most cases, they are also no match for a woman’s own intellect and intuition. Birth is sexual and spiritual, magical and miraculous – but not when it’s managed, controlled, and manipulated by the medical establishment, or hindered by the mother’s own mind.
In the articles and stories on this site I hope to present a new way of looking at birth, and ultimately, at life. Childbirth is a gift to be enjoyed not a curse to be endured. The time has come for us to cast off our doubts and fears, and learn to believe in our own abilities. What better place to start than with the birth of a baby?
I'd be eternally thankful for your support!

YAHOO! TV UK - Daybreak: Would you give birth at home?
Would you like to give birth at home, with no midwife, having had no scans and no medical help whatsoever? Well, today's episode of 'Daybreak' looked at a new trend from the United States, known as 'freebirthing', which involves precisely that. While the breakfast show featured an interview with a strong advocate of the process, who believes that more women should try freebirthing, there have also been safety concerns regarding the process.

My Book: Unassisted Childbirth
Someday women will not give birth in hospitals because they will realize that childbirth is not a disease. They will not pay physicians thousands of dollars to probe them and cut them and tell them what to do. They will not submit themselves to IVs, fetal monitors, vaginal examinations, or Cesarean sections. Nor will they take the hospitals into their homes, bringing there the well-meaning substitute doctors – the midwives – with their sterilized instruments, rubber gloves, and breathing techniques. For, none of this will be necessary.
Instead, like their animal sisters, women will someday deliver their own babies peacefully and painlessly at home. Women will understand that birth is only dangerous and painful for those who believe it is.
Someday, both women and men will understand that childbirth (and every other event in their lives) is the result of their individual beliefs. They will no longer listen to the voices of officialdom telling them that their lives are beyond their self-conscious control. They will listen instead to the inner authority saying, “Your life is your own creation. Believe in yourself and you have nothing to fear.” My goal in writing this book is to help make that someday today.
