Pip Wynn Owen is a childbirth educator, midwife and mother of 4. After the birth of her 4th child, her first with an obstetrician in the private hospital system, she realised there was a real need to step outside the system and give women a truly independent childbirth education service. She started ‘Birth Savvy…Ask for what you want’ and now runs Better Birthing Seminars and 2 Day Workshops, plus private childbirth education sessions in Perth WA. Birth Savvy’s focus is on helping women and their partners get the birthing experience they deserve through increasing their knowledge and confidence, and therefore their ability to have an equal relationship with their obstetricians. She is fast becoming the voice for pushing for better births in Perth’s private hospitals with journalists seeking her opinions for newspapers, magazines and radio.
Pip also writes a blog on her website www.birthsavvy.com.au
