Welcome to the GBG Resources Section!

In here we have compiled resources that fit with the Gentle Birthing philosophy and grouped them into categories to make it easy for you.

We encourage all pregnant mums to do as much research on birth and gentle parenting options as possible, but we also know it can often be hard to find quality information, so hopefully these recommendations will help!

Happy Birthing everyone :-)
