Birth Expert and Founder of the Positive Birth Movement
Milli Hill is the founder of the Positive Birth Movement (PBM), a global network of nearly 500, free to attend antenatal groups.
Her book, The Positive Birth Book, was published in March this year to wide acclaim, immediately becoming an Amazon bestseller and remaining one of the most popular books for pregnant women ever since. Her message is simple, that birth really matters to women, that it can be empowering, inspiring and life-enhancing, and above all, that they can do it! She is a tireless advocate for women’s choices and for the notion that birth can be positive in any setting, from home to the operating theatre.
As well as her work for the PBM, Milli writes for various publications about birth and motherhood, including the Telegraph, Guardian, BestDaily, GoodtoKnow and more. She is a member of several advisory groups on birth issues and speaks regularly about positive birth at events around the world. She lives in Somerset with her partner and three small children.
