“If I told you my births were calm, joyful and pain-free… would you believe me?”
Hi! I’m Carinya and these are my two cherubs. I have a husband I adore (who took the pic!) and together we longed for and dreamt of these babes for many years… a roller-coaster of emotions that ultimately led us to the miracles of modern day science: IVF / ICSI – for which we are eternally grateful. If you are experiencing difficulties falling pregnant please read our infertility and IVF story… I promise you’ll no longer feel alone, and you might even have a little giggle!
Like many other women though, I was terrified about the prospect of birth and I quote: “how does something that big fit out of there???!!!” Yes, I knew it was ‘natural’ and had been taking place for however many hundreds of thousands of years, yet I still could not comprehend it.
“The pregnancy birthing journey requires us as women to get back to a sense of life basics where we connect to & trust our intuition and instincts.”
When the time came, I was gifted with two incredible births: completely calm, natural & pain-free with no complications nor interventions. Yes you read that right: PAIN FREE! There are many who quite simply will not believe me – be it due to their own birthing experiences, the horror stories they’ve heard or because of what today’s media would have us believe birthing is. But I know the truth, as do my family, friends and the medical staff who attended. Even my husband says: “If I didn’t see it with my own eyes, I would never have believed it was possible”. Please, if you are a mum-to-be (first-timer or not) or ever plan to be, I beg you to read my birth story. If you let it, I know it will change your perspective and, with every fiber of my being, I believe it can, and sincerely hope it will, change your outcome.
“Birth isn’t something we suffer, but something we actively do and exalt in.” Sheila Kitzinger
I’m no medical professional, nor would I ever claim to be, but I believe that my amazing birthing experiences resulted largely from being both intentional and informed… two things that every expectant woman can be. The gift I was given and the information I gained is too great for me not to share. I am completely passionate and committed to seeing women everywhere experience births that leave them, and every witness thereof, completely astounded. I want you to have an incredible story to pass on to the next generation – breaking the stigma of pain, suffering & trauma associated with birth.
Please, turn away from the horror stories surrounding you and come on this journey with me. Let me share with you things every birthing mamma should know that unfortunately just aren’t shared as openly and freely in the modern world as they should be.

P.S. You know how I said my births were calm… well it’d be wrong of me if I didn’t admit to feeling a little panicked as baby girl was crowning on the (frantic!) drive to the hospital… but you’ll have to read on for that fun birth story!
