This site has everything you need to know about natural childbirth and pregnancy.
As well as lots of great products that I recommend for health conscious families.
All those birth choices and worries. Are online prenatal courses any good? Should I take Lamaze or hospital birthing classes instead? What are the foods to avoid in pregnancy?
How do I get my birth partner to give me the support I need? Can I have a natural childbirth in hospital or only at home? Maybe I want a natural water birth.
What’s a midwife? What’s a doula? And what’s the difference anyway? What causes labour pain? Can I avoid it without drugs or an epidural? Who can tell me about alternative birth choices?
It’s perfectly normal to feel anxious and even a bit alone sometimes, especially if you’re considering natural birth.
I’m Elizabeth MacKay. Please watch my video and let’s get acquainted. (There’s no sales pitch, I promise! It’s just me in my garden with my adorable grandson, talking about my career as a certified midwife and my life’s mission to take the fear out of natural labour for every expectant mother. Like you!).

This is number one for a good reason. Fear and anxiety can affect every part of your labour and cause unnecessary pain and birth complications. Fear in labour can cause your labour to become stalled or dysfunctional—a process called the fear-tension-pain cycle.
When human beings – male or female – are under stress, our bodies release all kinds of chemicals and hormones. Adrenaline is probably one you’ve heard of. This ancient survival mechanism prompted the “fight or flight” response in our cave-dwelling ancestors.
Your uterine muscles are beautifully designed to deal quite effectively with danger, fear and stress in labour. The uterus is the only muscle in your body that has two opposing muscle groups within itself.
One group of muscles contracts, pulling upwards to open the cervix during labour. The other STOPS it, if you sense danger or feel afraid while giving birth so that you will have time to get to a safer place to deliver your baby.
Emotional or physical stress will automatically signal danger to you. Your labour can slow down or stop completely so you can seek safety.
These two large muscles pulling in opposite directions are what cause increased labour pain, and it can slow down your labour.
By learning to deeply relax mentally, physically and emotionally; by actively dealing with your fears about childbirth before you go into labour; and by choosing a birthing environment that feels safe and protective, you no longer have to experience the increased pain caused by what’s known as the "Fear-Tension-Pain-Cycle".
The Workbook and the videos will also help you educate yourself and make plans. This education will greatly increase the likelihood that you will have a more positive birth experience because you feel confident in your ability to make more informed choices that work best for you and your baby.
The Peaceful BirthTM System is an online prenatal course that’s the most comprehensive of its kind. It’s also one of the easiest to understand and most relaxing to do.
I found that all of the breathing and relaxation techniques were really helpful during labour, especially when things started to get more intense.
Thank you so much, Naomi von Sonnenburg
