Own Your Birth is a source of information and inspiration for parents-to-be as well as for doulas, midwives, nurses, students, doctors and anyone else interested in changing the way we look at birth.
Owning your birth means taking responsibility for your body, birth and baby by educating yourself, and making conscious choices about birth and parenthood.
It's about taking back your power and giving birth actively, on your own terms - as opposed to being "delivered".
Join our community and empower yourself and others!

“I wouldn’t be the mother I am today if it wasn’t for this network of sisters, midwives, doulas and advocates of holistic women’s health and maternity care! The Own Your Birth webinars and community, and Kristina Turner’s and Maria Bengtsson Lenn’s books, have not just provided me with lots of information and contacts, they have helped me find that inner authority and force that every woman has—and that every birthing woman needs. It takes a village—let’s recreate it."
Helen Light, participant in Own Your Birth webinars, spring and autumn 2020.
“If you’re expecting a baby DON’T MISS THIS! Amazing Kristina Turner and Maria Bengtsson Lenn share their insights and talk to expert guests. As a doula, I often say: “prepare to give birth at home, even if you’re going to give birth in hospital”. The knowledge these women have and are able to share resonates deeply with me, and you won’t get this information from hospitals or maternity clinics, unfortunately. So don’t miss it!"
Tinna Björk Ólafsdóttir, doula and photographer, participant in Own Your Birth webinars spring 2020.
