The Birth of Sophie Partington


8 weeks ago, my pregnancy journey came to an end and my new adventure with the title of “Mom of 2” began, BUT, Almost 8 months ago, this journey started with three of the most amazing women. Women who walked me through literally every step, every stressful and blissful moment, of bringing Sophie (and actually Reuben too) into this world.

What’s really strange for me, and truly difficult to wrap my head around, is that actually it’s their job, and I am their client. When really it feels a lot more like the most wonderful friends, who held your hand through one of the absolute biggest moments you could ever have in your life. No one else sees you so vulnerable. No one else experiences you as your most raw, pained yet powerful self.

Ester Naude', Chantal Wells and Silvia de Barros, I could never truly thank you enough Words - and even actions - could never be sufficient, to express how much you all mean to me, and what a special place you will forever have in my heart for bringing me and Sophie safely through this pregnancy and birthing journey. You all are the reason that I can look back at this part of my life with nothing but pride and positivity, and always be the biggest spokesperson for midwifery and doulas

I hold so much love for you 3 in my heart, and will always




The Birth of Aden Wauts


I thank God every day for my blessings.  Not only do I have a perfect little boy, but I had the most beautiful birth experience that any women could wish for.  We are surrounded by horror birth stories but birth can be beautiful when you trust your body and have a support team to get you through.  This is my birth story.

I still cannot believe I got to experience this. I am so indebted to Ester, Shasta and my husband for making this happen. Bradley will forever be a part of my heartbeat


The Birth of Alyssa Swart


"Birthing is scary for many because it is so outside of your control.  But I would like to encourage expecting mommies to educate themselves as much as they can about the process of childbirth and then surrender to the process."
