Natural Birth Gets Coverage – Thanks Kate Middleton!

6 Comments

Many of you may have heard that Kate Middleton had a natural childbirth.  This has created some wonderful buzz about natural childbirth and an opportunity for some local doulas (and friends of mine) to get some local press coverage!  Check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMoSQY-2L7U&feature=youtu.be.  Kate’s choice for a drug-free birth helps open the door for dialogue about birthing options.  I was so inspired by my natural birth experience that I became a doula, or labor assistant, to help other mothers have the best birth possible.  I would like to point out that having a natural birth is actually cheaper assuming you can get coverage, but that’s another issue.  There are many resources about natural childbirth but here are just a few that I value.  What is your favorite natural birth resource?  If you don’t have one, does that mean we need more?!  Yes!  🙂

  1. Thanks for posting, Adrienne. We appreciate the support and hope that this DOES create more dialogue about birthing options.

  2. I didn’t know she had a natural childbirth! That’s awesome!! 😀
    My favorite resources: http://naturalchildbirthstories.com/ and the Just Mommy message boards (more birth stories). Reading lots of stories, all resulting in NCB, made me feel much more prepared because there were lots of possible ways for it to happen, and I had read so many of them. 😉

  3. you have no idea how happy I am that Kate had a natural birth it says alot about her. she is a great role model. People shouldn’t be pumping their bodies with drugs if they don’t need them.
