A preview of what you will find inside Birth Goddess in the Making...

Imagine if you were taught from an early age that “birth is a medical event, preceded by an illness called pregnancy and ends with an emergency called labour.” {Carla Hartley}

How would that impact on your anticipation of birth (massive fear, looking for what can go wrong) and the actual experience? (lack of trust in our bodies, looking to experts and technology for reassurance and salvation)

I believe this is what we are facing. Like a self fulfilling prophecy, we get what we expect. Reflected in this attitude is the fact that the vast majority of births in the developed world are highly medicalised.

Whether you are aware of it or not, you are communicating messages to your unborn baby all the time so it’s important to protect yourself and your baby from negative inputs or potentially stressful situations as much as possible

Are you planning to go natural? If you can’t answer this question right now with full resolve and commitment, Is it Time to Get off the Fence? Choosing the Road Less Travelled. If there is one thing I have learned, it’s that you can’t just sit on the fence and see what happens…

In our fast paced busy high-tech world, it is too easy to forget the importance of just BE-ING (not just DOING) and there is no greater time to practise this than while growing a beautiful new life inside of you who fully depends on you for their well being. So what is the answer to all of this? Slow down, switch off and more….

Birth By Choice, Not by Chance. We all run patterns in our lives; it’s just a matter of becoming conscious to them before they show up as complications. We have the power of choice! It all goes back to our beliefs. For example, no amount of encouragement during labour can help a woman who does not believe at her core that she is able to give birth normally and she does not require any drugs or anaesthesia to do so….

There is a fascinating saying, “Women often labour in the same way that they live.”How do YOU respond to challenges or crisis? Birth is a natural event that stretches us to our limits, not a problem (and certainly not a crisis) that needs fixing. However, many of us have been conditioned otherwise and our body’s stress response may be instinctively activated…

What others are saying about Birth Goddess in the Making….

We’ve had our baby and she’s just perfect happy and healthy. LuisaJust wanted to say a million thank yous to you for having introduced me to the world of positive natural birth as mine was this way and it was amazing – just like many women describe it in your book but my own way. I want to let people know of this wonderfulness! Thanks! X ~ Luisa on the birth of her beautiful little girl Sienna

I really thank you for thisRecently I made the realization that I have not been present in a good way during my pregnancy.

Thank you for this reminder. I needed it. It is as if the universe is reminding me I’ve made the right choice to take my maternity leave now, two months before my due date.” ~ Martha

Hi Katrina, I love your emails and magazine – they are interesting, inspiring and about real women. ~ Jane

You are definitely the kind of woman I’d be proud to call my “dear friend”, if I lived close by.  I want you two to know how grateful I am to have met you, half-way though we are, around the globe from each other. I don’t believe in “coincidences” in life; believe ALL people enter our space & cross our paths for a very specific purpose, even if not realized at that moment.

So admire the kind of professional services Katrina provides to so many women, at one of the most pivotal phases of their lives. I look forward to benefiting from & sharing with my granddaughter. Many thanks!
With much affection & gratitude, ~ Marilyn

        I just wanted to say thank you for your messages – I really love reading them and I love the        perfect timing of them. Many thanks for your work! ~ Asta
I am greatly enjoying your e-mails and information. It is very inspiring. I am a CD, CPPD, SBD in Lincoln, Maine (USA). Thank you for your opportunity and news letters. I always look forward to see them, ~ Ashley
Thank you so much for all your emails I have wanted to reply to quite a few but life, work, babies means I have few spare moments these days which is a great thing! Your story and your experience of birth and letting go of FEAR is also my story. Blessings, Hannah

{Nice to be recognised by an Ob/ Gyn for my work as well as discover one that totally supports natural birth! Just received this personal note all the way from Panama, Central America}

I am Obstetrician & Gynecologist. I work almost exclusively with pregnant women. My wife Graciela is too Ob-Gyn. We began 7 years ago to assist mothers in home and water births. It has been almost 300 hundred of successfully and amazing births. Right now in our country, Panamá, exists a huge and growing social movement in favor of natural births without or minimal intervention. We need people like you ! So, once again, Thank you and our desire to be in contact.

Warm regards,

Well, I enjoy getting your emails!!! I think my favorite things about your emails, not only are they empowering but what I enjoy most is how frequent I get them. There many people out there giving information and positivity but sometimes it can be infrequent or you have to wait too long to hear back.” ~ Andrea (West Texas, USA)

So true about going with the flow in birthing! Am looking forward to creating that zone in my planned home birth next March. Good reminding to practice this! All the best and thanks for writing an inspiring book! ~ Stacey

I’m a neonatal ICU nurse, which is why I’m interested in what you have to share. Many things have changed since I did midwifery training (30 years ago) 🙂  The doctors in private practice here in South Africa do not give mums-to-be much of a chance at normal delivery. A part of the problem is that the parents accept the doctor’s opinion without question. Mums also seem to have developed very low pain thresholds, and think that a Caesarian section will be less painful, can you understand that? Anyway, hopefully more mums-to-be will read your ‘mag’ and deliver naturally…. Thanks for updates. Regards, Fawny

What an inspiring article. {Raising a New Generation of Powerful Women} I’m only 10 weeks pregnant at this stage and I recently had my first appointment with my local midwife. Although she passed on a lot of educational content, I left the appointment feeling like I’d lost a little faith in my body and it’s capabilities – add to this the plethora of horror stories that people seem to be more than willing to share!

This article has helped reaffirm my underlying faith in pregnancy as a completely natural and actually joyful experience – I have your book at the ready and although was planning to wait until a little further down the line before reading it – I think I might start having a wee read of it sooner. Thank you for your insightful and inspiring writing, Taryn

I love that Chinese riddle {Great Wall Story} – it makes sense when you think about it long enough!
I sincerely believe that aside from medical complications, any woman who has been educated and empowered, and has good support, can give birth naturally. We are told by everyone around us, and most especially the media, that birth is painful and scary. If only every woman knew that being scared will only make the pain worse, and the whole birth experience harder! I think it’s great that you are working to provide the education and empowerment that women need to face the challenges of birth with confidence. Sincerely, ~ Rebekkah

Thank you for your wonderful encouragement and words of wisdom for expecting mums ( like myself) – I really love what you are doing!  This is totally the point that makes birth different for many human mums as opposed to other mammal mums – our minds can get in the way and disrupt the amazing nature-designed process. Thanks again 🙂 Kala
It was very helpful. My baby boy is 3 months old now. Everything went well. I enjoyed your articles and thoughts. They helped me keep focused and positive during labour. Thanks for that. Regards, Mathilde
Just had to respond to your last email, (Myths about Natural Birth) I remember feeling exactly the same after the birth of my son! I felt on top of the world like I could achieve anything and felt so strong for my new little cherub, it was the birth of a mama bear too! When people asked about the birth (people who had had children), most said the same things – lucky, high pain threshold (soo not true in my case!!!). I just wanted to share with everyone how amazing it was and how I believe all women can prepare and educate themselves for a positive birth experience, and how to get their wishes heard. Then I was asked at my Mothers group, when everyone was sharing their stories, and I started to withdraw from the conversation, as more and more “horror” stories were shared. I found myself quickly recounting some of the facts, and glossing over the “natural” part! With time now I feel more comfortable with discussing my birth experience and now my sister (2nd bub) and sister in law are pregnant! 🙂 and have been asking about things I recommend – I have pointed then to your website! Thank you for your inspiring work helping women around the world become less fearful of the birth, it truly is the most empowering experience meeting your bubba 🙂 Thank you, Bec Mills

I really enjoyed it. I’m a labor and delivery nurse of 25 years who is going back for her master’s in nurse midwifery. I am embracing normal birth, and applaud your efforts. Sincerely, Michele
