    Helped to structure my birth plan. Provides a quick reference which can be expanded upon with text. Helped prompt me as to what I could include in my plan.

    Fab book and great extra

    Posted by Faye Foot on 12th Nov 2018

    I absolutely love the positive birthing book it has totally changed my outlook on birth and taught me so many things i never knew before/ are highlighted in other sources. The birthing plan is fab and I love the fact you offer the icons as a free download! Just perfect for prioritising your wants and needs for birthing in an easy way the midwifes and my family can refer to!

    Awesome Icons

    Posted by Rainbow on 5th Nov 2018

    The icons are really nice and make a great and easy to follow birth plan. It's great that you can download them for free without having to actually buy the book. Though, we did buy the book, and find it extremely informative and empowering. Thank you for writing this :)

    Lovely and easy to understand visuals for your birth plan/ preferences. Covers many points and by doing so makes you think more about your birth preferences.
