Irene Chain Kalinowski (1956) was born in Rotherham, South Yorkshire England, to Polish immigrant parents, grew up and trained as a Midwife in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, England and has practiced midwifery through three continents, Europe, the Middle East, and New Zealand. For thirty four years she has practiced midwifery. A journey that has taken her to countries where women believe in childbirth and countries that chooses not to. Irene’s first book, "The Heart and Soul of Midwifery" Tells a story of how birth became so complex in our western society and how we need to make changes in the way we provide maternity services. How women need to take charge of their experience and how we need to understand the normal physiological process of childbirth. She shares real life experiences and takes you into the heart and soul of childbirth. This is a valuable insight into complexities the way we provide care. Irene’s books are a great reference resource for those providing maternity services.
She released her Second Book "My Body My Baby" in March, by her niece’s traumatic childbirth experience and the alarming C Section rates. She cares deeply for women giving birth and no woman should be traumatized from her birthing experience.
"Healthy women will produce healthy babies and there will be celebration of birth globally," states Chain-Kalinowski. "It is not only women who need to regain faith in childbirth, but our medical profession, needs to do just that. So when women take care of themselves there will be less need for interventions and we will see more homebirths and celebrated births as our children become confident in the gift that was bestowed upon us, the ability to birth. Women are in fact the driving force of maternity services and they need to reclaim 'Birth.'"
