Have you experienced a third or forth degree tear?

If so, I would love to hear your story. Your experience following a third or fourth degree perineal tear following the birth of your baby or babies, will help with research so we can assess how the health care system can best care for all women who experience this complication following childbirth.

For further information please contact Holly Priddis (Midwife, PhD Candidate and Researcher) via email or phone/text 0438 731 816.

Birth Stories Competition

We are excited to announce Pregnancy Birth and Beyond's 'Birth Stories Competition'. Everyone loves reading birth stories, stories about fast labours, slow labours, wonderful stories, sad stories, births at home, hospital or birth centre. We'd like you to send us your story. If you have photos of your labour, birth, baby or the new family that help illustrate your story we'd love to receive those as well. The best three birth stories will receive the prize. Selected birth stories will be published on this website.

We have three copies of this gorgeous keepsake for Australian children, the Limited Edition, Heritage Presentation of Animal Tales Series by Susan Hall and illustrations by Ben Guy to give away. The boxed set contains 4 individual hard cover books, 52 pages each. The National Library of Australia Publishing (NLA Publishing) is offering this highly successful Animal Tales series as a limited edition heritage presentation. A gorgeous keepsake for Australian babies and children!
