Katie is an illustrator and author based in the Lake District. She is mother of two small girls and one borrowed teen. Her smallest share very different birth stories, a traumatic c-section, and a peaceful home birth but with medical assistance afterward. Katie became fascinated about birth and collected data on natural birthing throughout both pregnancies, illustrating her ‘library of incredible facts’ to help mothers to be and their companions to birth lovingly and avoid intervention.
