Birth center, with the midwife Jacqueline Vejlstrup

Apr 21, 2021

In last week's Own Your Birth’s webinar Jacqueline Vejlstrup, a Danish midwife and a co-founder of @roskildefoedeklinik , showed us the statistics from the UK’s Birth Place Study, which looked at over 64,000 births in healthy women. It shows in black and white that it is NOT more dangerous to give birth at home or at a birth center, and that you are in fact MORE likely to experience birth complications and injury in a hospital!

If you’re thinking about a home birth and people around you try to scare you into giving birth in hospital (including doctors and midwives who haven’t cared to look at the evidence) then you can calmly go on planning your dream birth and tell those people that you don’t want to listen to fear-mongering and that they should assume responsibility and read up on the evidence.

To watch the full webinar sign up for a subscription, which gives you full access to all our live and recorded webinars, as well as continuously updated bonus material.

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".
