Welcome to an amazing spring!

Feb 06, 2021

When we started Own Your Birth last spring 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! For this reason, we’ve decided to switch to English in our newsletters and in some of the webinars, so that we can include more viewers and guests from around the world. 

We have an amazing spring ahead of us with renowned international birth experts and inspiring Swedish guests. Some of the webinars will be in English and some in Swedish.

Kristina and Maria will also hold monthly online workshops on different topics that we’re particularly passionate about. The workshops will be an opportunity for you to share your thoughts, feelings and ideas with other participants. Together we'll reflect on the subject, get new perspectives, have fun and create a safe space for everyone to enjoy. The safe-space part of the webinars, where we share our personal stories and feelings, won't be recorded. 

The webinars will be held on three to four Thursdays a month, at 19.00-20.30 (7-8.30 pm CET), with sufficient time to ask questions and connect with each other in break-out rooms after our guests have finished speaking.

We’re very proud to announce that our first guest on 11 March is Debra Pascali-Bonaro! Debra is a world-renowned doula, birth educator and author, and the maker of the film Orgasmic Birth. Debra will be speaking to us about ‘Why Positively Preparing for Birth and Parenting with Pleasure Matters: to you, your baby and your relationship’. Other birth experts on the guest list that you might already be familiar with include the legendary obstetrician Michel Odent and Harvard obstetrician Neel Shah, both champions of undisturbed birth. You'll find our exciting schedule for the spring below. 

To access all this, we’ve set up a platform where you can choose between: 

  • a monthly membership for 450 kr/month, or
  • one-off tickets for individual webinars for 225 kr

The monthly membership gives you access to all live and recorded birth education webinars (18 to date, mostly in Swedish), as well as a dedicated online community where you can ask questions, watch instructional videos, listen to specifically-themed meditations, and access short films and written material. 

We’re really looking forward to having you onboard! Each one of you makes a difference - in your own life and to others!

Warm wishes,

Maria & Kristina

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".
