Glastonbury birth

Posted on: June 30, 2009

A pregnant woman went into labour near the festival’s Stone Circle on Saturday.

The woman, a regular Glastonbury goer, is understood to have been keen to deliver the child in the Green Fields. She asked for help from “naturopathic experts” from the Healing Fields, rather than conventional painkillers.

Amazingly her own midwife was on the onsite medial team, and it was decided that for safety they should move to the midwife’s practice in a nearby village.

The woman left the site to have her baby and so the infant was denied the distinction of being the first Glastonbury birth since 1998.

By a stroke of luck her midwife was on the onsite medial team. It was decided that for safety they should move to the midwife’s practice in a nearby village.
