Hi.

Welcome to my website! I am a writer and copywriter and here you will find out a bit about me, as well as links to many of my published articles. Please make yourself a cup of tea and read a piece that takes your fancy. Thanks for stopping by! x

'Say what you will, but both my babies were born by c-section and I couldn't be happier.'

'Say what you will, but both my babies were born by c-section and I couldn't be happier.'

Stories about positive birth experiences that feature happy mums and contented babies, can be few and far between.

A few weeks ago Mamamia spoke to Alexis Hure about her amazingly calm home birth, and for an entirely different yet equally positive perspective, mum-of-two Alana Dagwell tells Mamamia about the wonderful experience she had with her two caesarean (c-section) births.

“During the pregnancy with my eldest daughter in 2012, I tried not to think too hard about the delivery itself. I was so tired and uncomfortable that I was just trying to get through the working day before tumbling into bed at 6pm,” Alana said.

“At an appointment with my obstetrician around the 30-week mark, she told me that my baby was in a breech position. As is current standard practice in Australia for breech presentation, I was booked in for a c-section at the Newcastle Private Hospital on 19 December. I admit that I felt rather happy and relieved to know that I wouldn’t be going through labour.”
