Season one: A Little Life: Birth in the first moons of pregnancy. Stories of physiological early birth (miscarriage) and postpartum.
Birthing in the sand dunes. Today we have the honour of witnessing Emma's early birth story. Emma shares that she's experienced many early births before, but today she focuses on her most recent early birth. Her experience shows how powerful we are when we listen to our intuition and claim our power back from the system. I'm honouring Emma's births, her babies, and her as their mother, always.
Today we have the honour of witnessing Maha's early birth story. Maha shares her experiences with fertility, and becoming a mother after healing her connection with her motherline.

I honour Maha as the mother of 4, I honour her early birth as a birth, her postpartum as a postpartum, and her baby as a baby. I honour Maha as the mother of her sky babe, always.

How long are you willing to wait? How much patience and trust can you cultivate? Today City shares her three early birth stories with us today. Her stories highlight the diversity in normal physiological early birth. City waited 6 unconscious and a further 7 conscious weeks for her sky baby to be birthed. Her first babe died at about 5 weeks gestation, and an 11 week scan showed this… City trusted her body and baby and waited until 18 weeks for her body and baby to be ready to birth. That’s 13 weeks my loves! I always say babes take 2 weeks – 2 months on average, and there will always be some that are quicker and some are longer. This is normal. Waiting 13 weeks to birth your sky baby is absolutely a variation of NORMAL. I am honouring City as the mother of 4, as the mother of 3 sky babes. I honour all of City’s births and postpartums. I honour her womb wisdom and power.
Orgasmic early birth! Yep, you read that right! Today we hear Kara’s two early birth stories. This is a special episode (orgasmic birth anyone?) that truly showcases how much variation there is in normal early birth. From orgasms to full blown days of labour. From laughter to pain. Thank you Kara for sharing your two beautiful early birth stories, I honour your early births as births, I honour your postpartums, I honour your babies as your babies, and I honour you as their mother, always.
Brittanie shares her early birth story with her first babe. She shares how birthing a dead baby shapes her matrescence, and how it feels to become a mother for the first time when you have birthed death, when you do not have a babe in your arms. Brittanie shares how she was bullied and verbally abused by health care providers and how she ultimately navigated herself out of the system and into complete self-authority and power, birthing her first babe freely and at home. Brittanie and I go down some important and powerful tangents, discussing birth trauma, systemic abuse, and how the patriarchal system is failing to centre women. It's a great chat to listen to if you're passionate about sovereignty, bodily autonomy and radical responsibility. I honour Brittanie's first birth, I honour her matrescence, I honour her postpartum, I honour her baby, and I honour her as the mother of three. You will always be this babes mother.
Today Lauren shares her early birth story, which followed two terminations. Lauren experienced an early birth, which was pathologised as a 'missed miscarriage'. Lauren dodged lots of health 'care' professionals and ultimately birthed in power at home. Lauren shares her emotional, physical and spiritual experiences with early birth, explaining that these experiences were a portal and made her the mother that she is today. I honour Lauren's birth, her postpartum, her baby, and herself as their mother, always.
