The tradition of sharing birth stories has many benefits for both speaker and listener — whilst the act of writing your birth story can help you to consolidate your birth experience and its meaning for you, hearing/reading others’ birth stories can also help us to become better informed (and inspired!) about birth.

If you would like to write or submit a birth story for our website and newsletter*, please email us.


A*ll birth stories and related photos published on the CARES Inc. website are shared with the permission of each author, who retains copyright.
