Favourite Pregnancy Resources

Websites

Indie Birth

  • My single favourite non-book source of Birthing information. Seriously down to earth, empowering, and well researched resources here, from their blog and podcasts to their online classes.

Midwife Thinking

  • A blog by one of the most outside of the box Midwives I’ve encountered. Her work really challenges the status quo, and is truly about trusting the Birthing process itself. Read every single post!

Dr. Sarah Buckley

downloadSpinning Babies

  • There is more to Baby’s position than being simply “head down”. Whether you are trying to turn a Breech Baby, or just want to learn about ideal Fetal Positioning and how the Mama & Baby duo’s bodies best fit together, the information and exercises on this website are truly essential to all Pregnant Mamas.
