Birth Stories

The Thackray Birth Stories project has been working with parents to tell a range of stories about childbirth. To find out how you can get involved, go to Our aim is to draw together a diverse range of birth experiences - whether it's about your own birth, when you had a baby, or when you witnessed the birth of your own child, or were there to support a friend or relative. We're collecting together experiences of parents who have experienced a whole range of births, from home births to C-sections, the happy stories and the ones that might be more difficult to tell. We're hoping a whole range of people will contribute - whatever background and country you come from.
