About fistbumpbirth founder,

Reign Lawrence

Reign trained as a doula in 2017, then an International Placenta Encapsulation Network specialist and Association of Breastfeeding Mothers supporter. She began a BSc in Midwifery with registration as a midwife in 2019. She had previously suspected that all was not well in maternity services from the high rate of caesarean sections and the constant refrain from women that they'd "not been allowed" birth at use the birth be in an upright position.


This troubled her. And what she saw as a student midwife, working in antenatal clinics and obstetric units saddened and enraged her. She chose to return to her roots as a traditional birth attendant - a birth CELEBRANT - a role more faithful to the traditional midwifery of old - educated waiting....patient...... hands-off. Intelligent tea-drinking.

In 2022 she free-birthed her "undiagnosed" twins at home entirely alone to avoid a medical system that tyrannises and infantilises and which had been clear they could not and would not provide the type and level of care she desired. She had always known that birth can be uncomplicated when left undisturbed by intervention and observation. She hopes to embolden more women to choose this wilder, radically responsible approach to birth, parenting, life, wellness and death.
