About the Book

Midwives say The Birth Map is “the best birth plan they have ever seen, and we wish more women would do this”. Partners welcome the ‘if this, then that’ approach to support, and report the process helps them to feel included and less stressed. Others have described it as Revolutionary. Birth Mapping is about communication, understanding and preparation. Birth Mapping provides a personalised, realistic and reassuring foundation for this important life event.

THE BIRTH MAP takes you through the Informed Birth Preparation process, helping you to understand and determine the decision points in birth and prepare for life with a baby.

  1. Tess Batchelor – Doula

    This book is hands down the BEST resource for all pregnant women & families.

    If you don’t know your options you don’t have any & this book really helps to arm you with knowledge, to fill in any blanks you may have & to leave you feeling confident if/when plans change.

    This book has enabled my clients to feel like they can advocate for themselves (because they know their options/alternatives) & to make decisions from an informed place.

    I highly recommend this book! 5 stars!
