Adela Stockton

From a background in teaching and ten years of midwifery practice, Adela Stockton has worked as a doula, doula course facilitator and childbirth homeopath since 2002. Born in Perth, Scotland, she is a founder member of the Scottish Doula Network and an active veteran member of national network Doula UK. Adela passionately believes that gentle birth can benefit the longterm health and wellbeing of mothers and babies. Her articles are widely published in professional journals and parenting magazines.

Adela’s premise is that the capacity to birth gently is within yourself.
A chapter titled ‘Clearing the Past’ looks at the importance of processing your own birth experience if it was a negative one, grieving for any miscarriages and ensuring that you are well in mind as well as body.

"The title says a lot about the way the book encourages the reader to feel in control of their body and of the birth process. The book is filled with thought provoking artwork and inspirational quotes, with her concepts beautifully illustrated with stories from real women. I would recommend it as essential preparation for anyone thinking about holistic and natural birth."
Vicki Williams, Journal Editor, AIMS Journal

"The idea that keeping birth normal is essential to the long-term health of humanity lies at the heart of this book. Adela Stockton’s ambitious enterprise is fully realized in her small but perfectly formed companion to pregnancy and birth. Her voice is one of gentle wisdom which recognises the many different emotions women may feel on their journey through pregnancy and birth. Her spare style has a great deal more to offer than some much longer books on birth.”

"This is a lovely book for any women wanting to explore the possibilities of a gentler way of giving birth in which she is in harmony with her body, and free from what is often conveyor belt management in a large institution."
Sheila Kitzinger, author, The New Pregnancy and Childbirth - Choices and Challenges, and Birth Crisis

"Birth Space, Safe Place is a sensitive and supportive guide to the journey of pregnancy and birth. Adela's gentle advice encourages women to tune into, and trust, the wisdom of their bodies, helping to transform birth from an experience of pain and suffering to one of the most powerful and fulfilling experiences of a woman’s life. Highly recommended."
Dr Sarah J Buckley author, Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering: A Doctor’s Guide to Natural Childbirth and Gentle Early Parenting Choices
