Calling Moms: We Invite You to Share Your Midwifery-led Birth or Pregnancy Story
by SSHMaternity on 09/15/2014 at 5:55 AM

momandbaby.jpgEvery birth story, just like every baby—is unique and special. It’s nearly impossible for women to forget the details of their birth(s) because each story is such an intimate part of one’s life. Because every story is important, as National Midwifery week approaches in early October, we want to put a special emphasis on sharing personal stories and the women behind them.

We would love to hear from you! Knowledge is power, and sharing your experience helps others make informed decisions, while giving clarity and peace to women embarking on their own journeys. Your submission will be added to a special gift drawing that will take place at the end of National Midwifery week. Be as brief or as lengthy as you want and feel free to include photos of you and your baby—if you wish to share. Some thoughts to keep in mind as you write:

  • What contributed to making your midwife birth a positive experience?
  • How did you handle any fear and/or stress, if any?
  • Did you feel there were any outside pressures that influenced your decisions during pregnancy?
  • If you’ve had multiple births, what were differences that contributed to having a positive experience?

Help be a voice in the community and share your journey with others. If you’d like to share your midwife experience with the SSH Babies community, please send us your story in a private message. Upon submission, you will automatically be added to a drawing to receive a special gift and your story could be included as part of our upcoming Midwives week celebrations!
