Birth Keeper Stories

Home Birth midwives and doulas are committed to the women they attend in labour.

Their lives are not their own, they are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and their families always take second place. They miss birthdays, wedding anniversaries and other special occasions to attend your birth.

They sit, patiently, in your home, bringing you a feeling of comfort and safety, monitoring your and your baby’s well being, waiting for the baby to emerge.

And they rejoice with each birth.


Here are some stories by and about midwives and doulas who attend home births:
