Birth Story Contest 2020

In 2019 we held our first Birth Story Contest...

This year, we continue the search for powerful, honest, and beautifully told birth stories.

If you want to be part of the Birth Story Contest Commitee check the positions here.

Are you a writer?
Have you always wanted to give writing a try?

The goal of the contest is to create a movement that fosters a positive culture around birth in the community, so parents and babies have a great start in that big life adventure.


We are looking for inspiring birth stories that have the capacity to change lives. It is a writing contest because well-written stories have the ability to make us feel and understand deep emotions like no other medium.


The contest will run from June 1st to August 1st 2020 and submissions are open to anyone living in Canada.


The first three winners will be published on our website in September 2020 and the

15 honorable mentions over the rest of the year.


At the end of the year, a book in electronic and paper format will be published and sold on our website. All proceeds will go towards the DSF.


All the winners will be invited to an official Birth Sharing Circle to tell their story in September 2020.

Please stay tuned to this space for more details as we get closer to the launch of this years contest!
