Choices that give you a better chance at having a safe AND natural birth, with a healthy baby in your arms, having avoided serious interventions or major surgery.

Dear Mama-to-be, 

Having surveyed many of our readers, we know there's a lot of fear of birth out there - fear of pain, fear of it all going wrong, and fear of the unknown.

We totally get it - when it comes to birth there's so much information AND MIS-information out there! It's a question conundrum... should you have any kind of intervention like inductions, c-sections, epidurals, synthetic hormones, drugs, forceps, vacuums, episiotomies and more? 

Or should you go completely au-natural? 

What if things go right? Or wrong? 

And in a Western medical system is it even your choice? 

Yes. It is your choice. 

And yes, these things are sometimes absolutely necessary for the health and well being of mother and baby. Of course, we're advocates for that before all else! 

However, statistics show these interventions are often well over used and unnecessary.

So much so, it can make birth more stressful (and even more risky) than needed for both mother and baby.

So What Is The Answer?


Be prepared... with the RIGHT information. 

As the mother-to-be, you do get a say. But so many give over that say to the doctors, midwives or obstetric nurses around them, because they are simply not as informed as they could be.

Sadly this results in an emphasis on using drugs and artificial intervention for your birth, no matter it’s appropriate for you or not. 
And that's where BellyBelly's The Truth About Natural Birth comes in to help you.

Each month we support some 1-2 MILLION women (and men) as they explore their options, search for information and navigate their committed goal for a safe, healthy and wherever possible, natural birth.

You know what we've found? 

Regardless of whether you come from America, Australia, the United Kingdom, India, Europe, Asia or anywhere else… 

Everyone feels comfortable with different levels of medical support and intervention or natural birth considerations - and that's perfectly okay! 

For example, some people feel completely secure giving birth in the medical system, and others relish the idea of a home water birth. But the majority sit somewhere in the middle!

However, everyone has one thing in common:
Mothers-to-be and fathers-to-be out there, people just like you, ideally, want a natural birth with the least amount of intervention possible. 

That's why BellyBelly's The Truth About Natural Birth was created - to ensure you can achieve exactly that, in the best possible way - prepared, educated and ready to go.

We look forward to supporting you to a better birth experience!

Why We Created The Truth About Natural Birth
About the Author 
Kelly Winder, Founder Of The Truth About Natural Birth
Kelly Winder
It’s taken me 20 years... giving birth to three children, becoming a registered doula, birth writer, and founder of one of the biggest pregnancy websites on the internet to know what I know now, and to be able to bring this program to you. 

I’ve experienced an induced birth (and the postnatal depression that followed), with my first baby. After that, I learnt what synthetic labour hormones and drugs had done to my body.
I then had two subsequent births where I went into labour based on my baby's own timing, without artificial hormones. 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. 

So, are you ready to level-up your birth knowledge, so you can have a safer birth with less intervention? 

You won't find this information in hospital-based birth classes. 
If you do - then I'll give you your money back, no questions asked.

Because I know this is critical information that you won't be getting from your hospital. 

For the first time, I'm making the full Truth About Natural Birth Program available for only $27 (usually $297)
