Whilst working with Kicks Count I was put in touch with Jackie Kietz, the author of  ‘I’m expecting a baby’ with a view to review the book.

This book is a fab buy for any woman who is pregnant. It’s empowering and informative without too much jargon. It’s all about knowing your birth choices and options in order to make informed decisions. Pregnancy can be a minefield when it comes to decision making and this book can really help straighten out the facts. I’ve read it from cover to cover and as a midwife I can thoroughly recommend it.

Are you pregnant or know someone who is? Then enter this giveaway to be in with a chance of winning a copy of this brilliant book. It’ll make a valuable addition to your pregnancy reading or a great gift to a pregnant friend.

Find out more about the author Jackie here and here.

The Pramshed



  1. A birthing woman should, first and foremost, feel empowered. Yes, even if everything goes wrong and circumstances beyond her control result in the exact opposite birth than she hoped for. Even then, a woman should feel empowered by her caregivers. She should feel listened to. She should be given as much choice as possible and her choices should be respected even if it turns out that they won’t work for whatever reason.

  2. brilliant! currently pregnant with number 7 and theres nothing more empowering than being organised and knowing exactly what you want

  3. It is easier to deal with / cope in regards to known possibilities, choices, options, etc. Rather than the unknown. Means can “go with the flow of the labour” whilst being aware of enviroment, companion/s, etc. Knowing that enviroment is comfortable, yet resources may be accessible, and companion/s will “be there” for the labouring woman. Allowing her to deal with labour in a way which is acceptable to her.

  4. I experienced two very different births. One was an incredible, natural experience that I will always be so proud of, and the other was quite frankly terrifying and still makes me anxious to think about. (Although the outcome was of course every bit as incredible!) The difference was entirely down to feeling empowered and being able to stay in control. This sounds like a brilliant read for anyone expecting a baby. Thanks for sharing with #DreamTeam x

  5. I think its.empowering because it makes me feel like im in charge of my body which you rarely feel when pregbabt because your body changes so much
