It doesn't have to be terrifying.
You don't actually have to dread giving birth.
In fact, the day you give birth can be the most amazing day of your life.
Birth ROCKS is a revolutionary approach to preparing for childbirth that looks at birth from a positive but honest perspective.
Every mum and every birth are unique and your preparation for birth should be too. This book accompanies your personal journey of self discovery, uncovering and releasing your fears of birthing and helping you to find out what will work for you during labour.
We won't promise you a 'one size fits all' solution to childbirth, but we will present you with honest, positive and helpful information and stories to guide you towards a positive birth.

Cheryl is a former business analyst, a perinatal yoga teacher, antenatal educator and mother of one.
