Now Mama, I know you’re scared. I know you are probably feeling a combination of excited, nauseous, and quite possibly petrified. I know exactly what it’s like to be so excited about meeting your baby, but totally freaking out about the pain of child birth. It can feel so lonely and frightening. But you are not alone, Mama.
With the Rockstar Birth Magazine, you CAN have a truly positive birth experience, however your baby exits your womb.
Twelve gorgeous magazines forming more than a year of positive and empowering birth love, with dedicated month-specific articles, insights and breath-taking birth stories. It doesn't matter whether you are 1-month or 8-months pregnant, there are actions that you can take TODAY to make all the difference to your birthing experience. And the sooner you start, the better.
You may choose to read 1 issue each month as your pregnancy progresses, or to binge read them all right now (you go, girl!). Either way is perfect. Whether you are planning to birth at home, in the birth centre, or with all available drugs at the hospital, the Rockstar Birth Magazine is your complete guide to the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of your pregnancy, birth, and first crazy months with a newborn.
With over 150 contributors from around the world sharing their birth journeys, expert insights, and birthing wisdom, the Rockstar Birth Magazine has a deep, rich body of knowledge to provide you with the foundation to rock your birth. As you read the magazine, you will learn:
- How to get past the fear of not being able to handle the pain of labour
- How to stop worrying about turning your man off sex forever
- That being terrified of… gulp… tearing, or an episiotomy, or an induction, or the use of forceps, or a caesarean, is TOTALLY normal
- That birth can be painful and intense and challenging, but... it can also be instinctive, powerful and earth-shattering
- How to surrender to your birthing journey, so that no matter how it unfolds you will feel empowered and involved and amazing
- That on the day you give birth, 360,000+ women around the world will be birthing with you
So what are you going to do… Stay in fear and keep pretending that birth isn’t going to happen to you? (Reality check. It is.) Or take a deep breath, step up, and become an active participant in your birth?
The Rockstar Birth Magazine is a step-by-step guide that covers everything you need to know to have a positive birth experience. Now I won’t be reminding you about taking a glucose test or checking your blood pressure, Rockstar Mama. Instead I will be sharing the tips + tricks + deep soulful trust to make your birth and motherhood journey one of the most expansive and uplifting experiences of your life. To birth like a Rockstar, you need to feel powerful.
On behalf of both you and your baby, you need to OWN your birth experience, Mama.
If you just turn up to hospital and hand yourself over to the medical staff saying ‘tell me what to do next’, then you are giving up your power. Now, I’m not saying that you can just close your eyes and miraculously manifest a blissful birth on a bed of rose petals where your baby slides out whilst you’re sipping herbal tea. I’m also not saying that you can work your butt off visualising a water birth at home and absolutely guarantee that you won’t ultimately need some hospital attention. However, I am saying that you can absolutely do what’s required to inform, educate, and empower yourself to have an amazing birth. A birth where you feel assertive, involved, and in control, regardless of how your babe actually enters the world.
The time to start preparing for your Rockstar Birth is NOW. No matter how far along you are in your pregnancy, you will find the information you need to make the right decisions for you and your baby.
Because my friend, you and your baby both totally deserve to have a Rockstar Birth

PS – My mum has a saying (probably from her mum) which is that ‘giving birth is just like shelling peas’. Now I have shelled a few peas in my life and let me tell you, birth is NOTHING LIKE THAT. And that’s because birth is like nothing else you’ll ever experience. It is the most raw and vulnerable and uplifting and breathtaking experience of your life. Isn’t it worth doing what you can to make it as amazing as possible?
Get away from the fear and negativity, Mama. Step into your own empowering and affirming birthing space. Sign up to be a member of the Rockstar Birth Magazine today.
It’s the perfect accompaniment on this wild and amazing adventure through Pregnancy + Birth + Motherhood.
I want to be clear, Mama. Your birth experience will leave you forever changed. Whether positive or negative, it will have a ripple effect across your entire world. Impacting your bond with your baby, your feelings about your body, and your relationship with your lover.
It will be a defining moment for you.
You have a choice now, Mama. You don’t have to fear birth any longer. It’s time to get out of your head and into your body. Let me show you how with a Rockstar Birth Magazine with full access to all 12 Magazines (plus bonuses!) x

Is the Rockstar Birth Magazine available in hard-copy?
At this time, the Rockstar Birth Magazine is exclusively a digital magazine available online (although I would LOVE to see her glossy pages in print!). The magazine is hosted on the issuu publishing platform and you can download each issue and read it offline (whilst lying by the pool in Bali on your babymoon!).
Will there be more issues of the Rockstar Birth Magazine?
There are several bonus issues under development which will be available for free to Rockstar Birth Magazine Members. Each bonus issue will focus on a specific theme like: Healing Birth, Caesarean Birth, Love & Loss, Homebirth, Dads at Birth, and the Rockstar Baby & Toddler!
WHY IS 'LABOR' SPELT 'LABOUR?
This Rockstar Mama resides in sunny Australia, and as such, you will find that the majority of our content is shared in Australian English (as opposed to US English). But regardless of whether you go into ‘labor’ or ‘labour’, and become a ‘mom’ or a ‘mum’, you are still a total Rockstar!
ARE YOU A DOCTOR OR A MIDWIFE?
I am not a doctor, midwife, doula, obstetrician, nor do I have any formal medical training. The information shared in the magazine is based on the personal birthing journey's of the many women who have shared their experiences. Please always discuss your questions with your primary caregivers to determine the best birthing support for you and your baby.
Can I advertise in the Rockstar Birth Magazine?
The Rockstar Birth Magazine is an advertising-free zone! There is no advertising in any issue, however, there are advertising options on the Rockstar Birth Magazine blog, and in our weekly newsletter. You can find further details about the advertising options here.
