Welcome to our Natural Birth Forum! For those of you wanting to have a natural childbirth and for all our experienced natural mamas, you have come to the right place!

Why a Natural Birth Forum?

natural birth

Having a natural childbirth can be big challenge in many countries. Neither hospital procedures, insurance reimbursement methods, nor obstetrician training are conducive to natural birth. Let’s talk about how to have the birth of your dreams. Let’s talk about our choices.

We would love to have experienced natural mama’s from countries all over the world share what worked for them. This is a great place for pregnant mamas-to-be to ask those burning questions you want answered!

We want to create a safe place where natural moms and mothers-to-be can swap stories, share tips and support each other. We all are busy, here is a time-effective place for us to discuss birth and share pictures from our lives. Let’s build a fun, supportive community of women interested in natural birth! The more the merrier…
