The Great Birth Rebellion

Dr Melanie Jackson

Hosted by Dr Melanie Jackson (@melaniethemidwife The Great Birth Rebellion dismantles western beliefs and management of birth and presents an evidence-based alternative to modern birth practices. We believe that calculated rebellion against medicalised maternity care is the evidence-based and preferred path to having a great birth. This is the great birth rebellion.
