We very much hope you find the icons and The Positive Birth Book useful.

    Positive Birth Book and downloads-Milli Hill

    Posted by Tina Wyeth on 9th Apr 2019

    Absolutely fantastic book! So glad I read before giving birth as it made me aware of my options and also the importance of having a plan - even if it doesn’t go the way you thought it would at least the Midwives have something to work towards and know that you are informed!
    I used the downloadable symbols to put together my own birth plan which I am pleased to say was followed and respected by the midwives who looked after us. Thank you so much for such a wonderful resource! Tina & Baby Maddie
