Your Natural Birth Stories
Natural birth stories are wonderful in opening our eyes to how others are birthing.
Some things we may even like to pick up and add to our own experience. As we go about deciding how we want to birth, it is wonderful to be inspired by other mothers who have been in the trenches and seen the rainbow!
How we birth is very personal and can be very empowering, some of it we have creative control over, some of it will be our babies surprise! If we come to the birth with an empowered idea, flexibility and the ability to stay in the moment and move with our bodies and our babies, we come prepared!

I have come across a wonderful book in my own search for inspirational, natural birth stories which can be accessed and downloaded for free at
This inspiring work of 48 natural birth stores was put together by Sheri L. Menelli and is called Journey Into Motherhood: Inspirational Stories of Natural Birth. There are so many incredible stories in this book, however my favorite story is the last, on page 315 called In My Deepest Meditation by Yael Solomon. Also included are the mothers telling what helped them the most in preparation with each birth, plus at the end of the book: visualizations and affirmations, glossary of terms and explanations of different child birth prep classes. It is a great read! Thank you Sheri, you have provided so many positive birth stories and references.
In putting together these birth stories and hearing other women talk about the process, it's obvious that the journey of how and where we come to labor are important stepping stones to how we are going to parent. Be inspired to open to avenues that may not have already been considered. Let these birth stories build our connection to the souls of women who have passed this route recently. We can draw on their strength, their knowledge and their creativity. We can connect with their essence so that we may never feel alone, or as if we're the only one who has passed these stepping stones before. Our journeys may look very different, but if we look closely we will find more similarities than differences. We welcome your own birth story, and ask that you share yours below to empower other women, remember to pass along your own experience as a gift to the women who are traveling the road of birth and motherhood after you! It is deeply appreciated.
