I'm a journalist, author, campaigner and charity CEO. I believe that women often get a raw deal in pregnancy, childbirth (well, across their reproductive lives) and I'm working hard to change at least a little part of that.
These days I spend most of my time as chief executive of the human rights in childbirth charity Birthrights , writing freelance for The Pool, The Guardian and others as well as commenting on birth-related issues in the media. You can buy my little book, Why Human Rights in Childbirth Matter right now. My next book, Your No-Guilt Pregnancy Plan is being published by Penguin Life in spring 2018.
I'm also a (very occasional) birth doula based in Kent.
