About Whoosh!

“Whoosh! is an intimately written guide for birthing companions to help them get actively involved and feel supportive on the birthing day…”Gaby Moss

Whoosh! was created for the author’s partner following masses of research into active and natural birth, and a blockage in being able to gently communicate the findings in the later stages of pregnancy.

The result is this little guidebook, balancing scientifically accurate medical facts with humorous truisms, illustrated throughout with loving explanations.
