WHY OWN YOUR BIRTH?
Whether you're having a c-section, a "regular" hospital birth or a home birth, the birth of your child is an experience that you'll never forget and that will impact you for the rest of your life.
A traumatic birth can leave scars in body and soul, and affect your connection with your baby.
If you don’t know how to reduce the risk of having a negative birth experience, you might be left feeling frightened and disempowered. But the more informed and prepared you are, the more you increase your chances of having a positive birth experience.
We’ve spent the past two years speaking to midwives, doulas and doctors about the most important factors for having a great birth, and recorded a load of inspiring birth stories from members of our community. We’ve uploaded it all in our library for you to watch when it suits you.
Own Your Birth helps you to make informed choices, take charge of your journey and give birth on your terms.

OWN YOUR BIRTH WEBINARS
When we started Own Your Birth in the spring of 2020 we had no idea that it would become such a success. Our intention was to support women who had to give birth in the middle of a pandemic, but we seem to have hit a deeper nerve.
There’s an unquenchable thirst for empowering information about what keeps birth calm and undisturbed, and therefore we'll keep offering webinars!
We have an amazing autumn ahead of us with renowned international birth experts and inspiring Swedish guests.
The participants are usually a mix of pregnant women, their partners, birth workers and other professionals who work with pregnancy, birth and postpartum.
The webinars are held two to three times a month, at 19 - 20.30 pm CET. Click down below to see our exciting schedule.
“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.
