Real birth stories

However prepared or anxious you feel about giving birth, there's something reassuring about hearing what other mums went through during labour.

From catching coronavirus in pregnancy to a 10 minute labour, we spoke to real mums about their real birth experience to help expectant mums prepare for the unexpected! 

 

It's important to get clued up with expert information about giving birth, but it's also invaluable to hear real mums' stories too. We bring you a range of real birth stories, from giving birth at home, and on holiday, to being 17 days overdue, and how to cope when your birth partner isn't there. Feel the support of all these mums who've been through exactly what you're going through!
