Yeah, but Andrea...What if I'm not 100% sure about having an unassisted birth?

I understand that making this decision can be complicated. Perhaps you've given birth in the hospital and have vowed to never do it again. Maybe you just intuit that you want full privacy during labor, and can't imagine having it with a midwife or doctor present.

That's why the book helps you explore whether you want an unassisted birth, or simply a labor with a practitioner who won't unnecessarily disturb the process.

If choosing an unassisted birth doesn't feel right, you can apply everything you learn in this book to any type of birth...and very likely improve your overall experience, and your ultimate satisfaction with this birth.

Hi there.

I'm Andrea Olson

I’m a mom of six children born over a span of thirteen years. Yes, in some ways, I'm a little nuts. Four of them were born at home, and three of those four were born unassisted - freebirth, they call it. I've spent over five years researching and collecting information on how to have a fulfilling, informed, and satisfying freebirth. I'm also a Certified Holistic Doula.

With my fifth baby, when my midwife quit five days before my due date, and I ended up using the manuscript to my then-unfinished book to prepare me for an incredible, meant-to-be, unassisted birth. I've taught new parents how to potty their babies from birth with elimination communication for ten years. Now I teach YOU how to experience an undisturbed birth, whether at home or in hospital, assisted by a clinician or not.

If you have any more questions about the book, please shoot me an email

Thanks for taking the time to read this info on navigating unassisted birth. I wish you a very satisfying pregnancy and labor experience!
