Welcome!

Hello! :D

This website began life as a repository rather than a blog.

As a (then) academic, I was continually being asked for copies of articles that I had written, and began (with the kind permission of the original publishers) making them available here.

I went on to write regular blog posts, and this grew into the Birth Information Project which runs alongside my paid work.

This website now houses both my older articles AND newer blog posts.

We have left this blog post – my first – up for posterity, and to mark the date on which the site began.

You can find out more about me on the About page and you may like to take a look at my books.

You can subscribe to my newsletter and receive free updates on birth-related research and thinking.

Or pop a word or two into the search box if you’re looking for content on a specific topic.

Enjoy the site!

If this blog post or any of my work has helped you or those you care for, please buy me a coffee and help me continue to provide independent birth information online as well as in my books.

Thank you 💜
