No guilt, no judgement and absolutely no bullshit.

I'm a journalist, author, campaigner and charity founder. I believe that women often get a raw deal in pregnancy, childbirth (and 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 working with the human rights in childbirth charity Birthrights I founded, writing freelance for The Pool, The Guardian (and others) as well as commenting on birth-related issues in the media. I became interested in birth and women's rights when I became a doula and these days I'm still a (very occasional) birth doula.

I live in a muddy field in deepest Kent with my two children, my husband and a motley crew of semi-useful animals.

You can buy my little book, Why Human Rights in Childbirth Matter right now or listen to my Guardian Shorts audiobook, All That Matters, narrated by Rachel Pickup.

My new book, Your No-Guilt Pregnancy Plan was published by Penguin Life in 2018.
