“Forever grateful – found your book extremely encouraging, positive & reassuring”

“I too am a first time mum-to-be & found your book extremely encouraging, positive & reassuring. When in early stages of my pregnancy I would worry or feel anxious about what was to come & choices ahead of me, just reading some of the shared stories would make me feel happy & elated that I was on my own journey towards something wonderful. Thank you for giving us a tool to enable pregnant women to feel joy & excitement and conviction in seeking a positive natural experience. I’m forever grateful to the person who recommended it to me.” ~ Melissa Anne

“It’s what I want for birthing women (and families) all over the world. Great job!”

Hi Katrina,
I just downloaded it {Empowering Birth Magazine} and looked over every page. It’s gorgeous! You must be so proud!

I love the clean and easy-to-read layout, the wonderful pictures, and the focus on empowering topics. I haven’t read all the articles (obviously) but I loved every word of the introduction. I feel like it’s something that could have come from me. It’s what I want for birthing women (and families) all over the world. Great job!

Just wanted to say how great your book and cards were to me during my pregnancy and labor – I was wanting a VBAC for my second baby and I GOT IT.

Just wanted to say how great your book and cards were to me during my pregnancy and labor. I attended one of your sessions { Reclaim Your Birth Power Workshop} last year with my Doula Colleen Monk. It was so motivating and so helpful.I was wanting a VBAC for my second baby and I GOT IT. My labor was hard work but i didnt give up at any stage and what a great feeling it was when my baby was put on my chest, I was so emotional from knowing i did acheive a VBAC that didnt think to check what sex it was. Then to my suprise my partner annouced it was a GIRL( really sure i was having a boy). I was crying out to everyone ITS A GIRL AND I VE HAD A VBAC. I suggest your book now to everyone. It was the best reading during my pregnancy so thank you .

“I can NOT recommend your book enough…Thank you, thank you, thank you”

“Thank you Katrina for giving me the power to be part of a positive birth journey by reading A Modern Woman’s Guide to a Natural Empowering Birth. I LOVED the birth stories and took lots on board. It gave me the confidence to write my own “birth preference” and stick to it in a private hospital environment. I can NOT recommend your book enough, especially to those who fear the most rewarding event that we will ever be part of in our lives! Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

Many thanks,

Birth Column “Birth By Choice Not By Chance” Featured in Soul Cuisine

Paula Johnson of Soul Cuisine writes……Most of my readers will know that entering Early Menopause at the age of 29 cut short my opportunity to give birth and enter the realm of Motherhood to my own children. However, I’m absolutely sure if I had had the opportunity to give birth, I would have opted for as ‘natural’ a birth as possible. Our mindset plays a vital role in the process of pregnancy and birth, here Katrina Zaslavsky tells it like it is…(actually I should say, tells it like it can be)…

Birth By Choice, Not By Chance…by Katrina Zaslavsky

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 that needs fixing. However, many of us have been conditioned otherwise and our body’s stress response may be instinctively activated. This is especially true when we are fearful or feeling unsafe.
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.

So inspired by the stories…..given me the confidence to believe I CAN do this!

I was given your book to read from a friend at work, and was so inspired by the stories i read. I’m expecting my first baby in a week and it has made me feel so much more confident about the whole labour, and given me the confidence to believe that i CAN do this! Thank you.
