My Birth Story (Short Novel)

22-Mar-2018

To me, the thought of being pregnant scared me. In all honesty, the thought of it was absolutely petrifying. Yes, your life's going to change forever but my real fear lay in the labour. To me labour was about the following: A clinical room where ..

From a hospital to a home birth

22-Mar-2018

I got in touch with ‘One to One’ when I first discovered I was pregnant, following a recommendation from one of my best friends who were also using the service. Being a first-time mum, I didn’t know what to expect from pregnancy..

Positive hospital VBAC

22-Mar-2018

My first birth was a bit of a disaster. Essentially everything I didn't want to happen, happened. Two weeks over, induction, failure to progress, so had to be given the hormone drip, baby's heart rate dropped, I had a spike in temperature, which ..

I got told about the One to One service by a friend so I looked into the service. Although my story is not about a home birth it is about the amazing lady that has literally been part of my life for the past 10 months. When I first spoke to J..

Light at the end of the tunnel. Lumen's birth.

05-Mar-2018

This is not a recount of a dream home birth but my story about how love, care, knowledge, choice and strength won when my home birth dreams fell apart. In May 2017 I found out I was expecting baby number two. After an unplanned section with ..

First time mum, perfect Home birth!

22-Feb-2018

I first found One to One Midwives when searching the internet for Hypnobirthing classes, the more I read of One to One Midwives, the more I felt this suited our needs as first-time parents. We had been with the NHS midwives for the first 20 weeks..
