First of all, it’s good to know what the term ’positive birth’ actually means. It doesn’t necessarily mean a completely drug and intervention free birth that lasts 3 hours; in fact a positive birth experience isn’t so much about the type of birth you had, but the way you felt about it. Milli Hill, founder of the positive birth movement defines positive birth as: 

“A positive birth means a birth in which a woman feels she has freedom of choice, access to accurate information, and that she is in control, powerful and respected. … Positive Birth is about approaching birth realistically, having genuine choice, and feeling empowered by your experience”
