Welcome to the Natural Birth Stories WebRing!
The purpose of the Natural Birth Stories WebRing is to provide a cohesive collection of NATURAL birth stories
to the ring surfer. The purpose of this ring is not to judge whether a birth meets my standard of birthing, but rather to provide a way for those with an interest in natural birth to be able to easily find births that would be classified as such.

In this webring you can read positive birth stories in which labor has not been induced and the care provider did not break the mother's water. In these stories the mothers are not hooked up to continuous fetal monitoring and move about freely during labor. These mothers labor and give birth without using any pain medication. They push their babies out on their own and are not cut in any way with a knife. These mothers labor and deliver naturally.
Each birth story is unique. For some mothers it is their first child; some mothers have already given birth to several children. Some mothers in these stories give birth with a doctor's assistance, some with a midwife's assistance, and some give birth with only their family in attendance. Some deliver their babies in a hospital bed, some in their own bed at home, and some in a tub of warm water.
Each story is beautiful and powerful. Each story is amazing and yet so simple. . . and natural. Birth is a normal process, not a medical procedure.
