So easy to complete

Mind blowing

Everyone should read this book! It shocks me that it's not common knowledge. This book is the best thing I've ever read and I don't understand how anyone can have a baby without having read it. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Positive birth book Icons

Very clear icons, covered everything you need to think about for birth preferences. My midwife commented on how helpful the icons make it for them to know what you do/don’t want. Highly recommend these

Handy planning tool

After reading the Positive Birth Book (which I would also recommend), I downloaded these for free. They were so useful in helping to plan and structure my birth plan. The images makes the document easy for midwives etc to pick it up and very quickly understand what is important to me for the birth. I also found them really useful as they helped me consider elements of birth that I probably wouldn't have before. I now feel confident and excited about putting this plan into action!

Easy to use, really useful for putting together the birth plan. Makes the birth plan a lot shorter and easier to understand

Brilliant idea, this is a practical useful resource which is beautifully drawn, clear and simple to use.

Very Useful Resource

This was so helpful and easy to use. Cuts the waffle of a written birth plan, helping to distil preferences down and communicate them clearly.
