Leigh East

Leigh East has two girls, both born by caesarean and believes very firmly in a woman’s right to informed choice.

She is the author of Caesarean Birth: A positive approach to preparation and recovery. It is the culmination of years of research and has involved a wonderful network of specialists who helped ensure all the information is medically accurate.

She has been a user representative on the UK Government’s Working Party for Maternity Care and inputs into their National Institute of Clinical Excellence guidelines.

When she is not writing or creating stuff with her teenagers she can be found at her sewing machine making even more stuff.
