After the water births of my two daughters, (my first with Yehudi Gordon the obstetrician who pioneered Active Birth and water births and my second birth at home) I became fascinated by the whole process of pregnancy and birth. I trained as an Active Birth Teacher and I have run pregnancy and birth classes since 1997. I have helped many parents, through the process, challenge and joy that pregnancy, labour and birth brings. I am also intrigued by what this journey means for us all, not only with the physical experience of birth, but what this can mean when applied to all aspects of our lives. There is a ‘birth’ process in all that we do.
