Talking Everything Birth

Our maternity system is broken.  We have a postnatal depression epidemic, with suicide being the leading cause of maternal death in the developed world.
 Birth trauma is rampant.  We have incredibly high intervention rates in birth around world, yet this is not leading to better outcomes for mothers and babies.

 

A conversation about what is REALLY going on in our maternity care system and birth culture. Plus the truth about epidurals and the facts about normal physiological birth.
Topics all birth professionals and pregnant women need to know about.

 

 

 

 

We ran our second live event in Sydney and recorded it for you to now view, no matter where you are in the world.

Rhea spoke from experience and wisdom about what the current situation is in our Australian Maternity Care System, and the alarming statistics about normal physiological birth and epidurals.

There is a social shift happening and women are feeling the pressure.

We are currently in the 'labour bypass era' where the birth culture is embedding into women's way of thinking that women should be 'COMFORTABLE' in labour, birth can be 'CONVENIENT' so they can choose when to have their baby, and women can be in 'CONTROL'.

But when you understand the science and facts, you'll understand why it's so important that we get less women choosing the epidural, let them know what they’re missing out on, and how it will effect them postnatally AND with their early bond with their babies.

Highlights from the Event

Our live events are becoming well known now for not just our exclusive information about birth, but our live entertainment too!

 

Here's just a small snippet of the latest stats on what is currently happening in our our maternity systems - and our birth culture - with vaginal births and caesareans.

 

Women don't have to labour anymore because of epidurals.

 

We welcomed epidurals in when they were first introduced, knowing very little about what they were going to do...

 

When women go through a deeper brain wave state in labour, it can often be so misinterpreted. Women need to understand the science of what happens to their body during labour.

 

With epidurals, it's not about NOT giving women a choice, but it's about not getting them to not want to choose it... for many reasons that Rhea shares with us. Women need to know what they're missing out on!

 

One of the things women are missing out on when they choose an epidural, is in early mothering.

 

We need more women who have had positive birth experiences sharing their stories.
