Increase Your Chances Of A Safe & Natural Birth And Avoid Interventions And Major Surgery
You have a choice. There is a better way to give birth
 with the right knowledge. 
Today, around half of first time pregnant mamas-to-be will be induced into labour with synthetic hormones and injected with harmful drugs, dramatically increasing the risk of unnecessary cesarean section, episiotomy surgery, and postnatal anxiety and depression. 

The BellyBelly Immersion brings you the leading birth experts and medical professionals to empower you to have a choice how your birth goes and what is right for your baby. 
  • Be armed with the right information and your rights as a woman and mother in the current hospital birthing system.
  •  Understand the safe and natural alternatives to synthetic hormones, and the standard surgical approach to birth.
  •  Learn practical strategies and exercises for you and your partner to be confident and have peace of mind in the lead up to your big day. 
  •  Easy to understand video format, no overwhelm with endless books to read and no medical knowledge needed. 

Dear Mama to be, 

Did you know most expecting mothers are completely underprepared when it comes time to head to the hospital on the big day? 

I did what many women do, which is to go-with-the-flow and not do much preparation, trusting that the doctor and hospital would take care of everything, and it would all be OK. But the reality was I had a traumatic first birth experience that affected me for long after that day, and I don’t want that to happen to you.
Why ‘Going With The Flow’ During Your Pregnancy & Birth Can Derail You From The Birth You Really Want
The problem is, the ‘flow’ in the United States, Australia, and many other developed western countries, is an under resourced hospital system that is forced to push through patients as fast as possible and minimise insurance liability. 
Sadly this results in an emphasis on using drugs and artificial intervention for your birth whether it’s appropriate for you or not. 
Despite this, you can have a birth that is according to your body’s natural rhythm, avoid harmful pharmaceuticals with unknown side effects, and stop unnecessary major surgical procedures from happening to you - without any medical training or having to read countless books. 
You just need to have the right information and know what to say and ask of health professionals, know how to prepare yourself and your partner, and who to turn to if things don’t go to plan. 

This is why we sought out the best independent specialists, midwives, therapists, and health professionals, and created the BellyBelly Immersion, a 5 part online program for pregnant mothers like you who want the best chance of a natural birth with no complications that endanger you or your baby.

Why I Created The BellyBelly Immersion
About the Author / Creator 
Kelly Winder, Founder Of The Immersion & BellyBelly.com.au 
It’s taken me 16 years and having three children, becoming a registered doula, birth writer, and founding one of the biggest pregnancy blogs on the internet to know what I know now, and to be able to bring this program to you. 
But not only just that, I’ve been through a hospitalised, drug induced birth and postnatal depression after my first baby. It was after that, that I woke up to what the synthetic hormones and drugs were doing to my body.
 I then had two subsequent births that were drug free. The difference I felt in my self esteem, confidence as a mother, and connection to my children was nothing short of a revelation. 
You don’t have to have one or two births to have this realisation or to go through depression or unnecessary surgery, you can have it now, before your baby is born.

Even if you genuinely need a c-section, an induction or other type of assisted birth, being equipped with this information, you’ll know you gave it the very best chance you could for a natural, joyful birth experience.

"What my first birth was like.. and what you can learn from it."
When I arrived to the birth ward at hospital for my first child, I was anxious about the midwives I was about to meet. I had begun labour, and things started to take time. 
Too much time according to the obstetrician on duty. 
“I’m going to break your waters” he said, then he also started the synthetic hormone IV drip they had me connected to. 
This was not what I wanted. But I felt he was the expert and I should just go with it. Like most pregnant women, I was full of fear about losing my baby - so best to stay quiet, right?
Not long after the drip started, my contractions accelerated into a constant pounding that felt like one huge continuous contraction. I ended up yelling,“OMG I’m going to die,” with my palms clenched and my eyes tightly shut.
I tried gas for pain relief. It was awful. I vomited. 
It felt like my head was blowing up like a balloon and all fuzzy, but I could still feel all the pain, everything exactly the same. 
I felt like I had no control over the situation at all. 

I felt like there was nothing else for me to do but yell for the epidural, and that’s what I did. My dreams of a natural birth were dashed and I felt like a failure. 
After the birth, I had a healthy baby boy but my confidence in my abilities as a mother, my instincts for what’s right for my body and baby, even who I am as a person were deeply shaken. 
I fell into a deep postnatal depression and was prescribed yet more drugs, antidepressants, which didn’t really help. 

It wasn’t until I realised that it was this whole artificial hurried process, synthetic oxytocin, and lack of a proper support structure, that had undermined my self esteem and natural body processes, and I started a journey to really understand how to do this birth thing right with evidence based information and practical advice from people who have been there and done it, countless times. 

This is why I want to help you to reduce your chances of becoming a statistic in the system, of having a disappointing experience and wondering what the heck happened.
