Milli Hill is a freelance journalist and the author of the bestselling The Positive Birth Book, Give Birth like a Feminist, and a new book for preteens, My Period. From 2012 to 2021 she founded and ran the global Positive Birth Movement.
As a journalist since 2013 she has written for many publications including Telegraph, Guardian, ipaper, GoodtoKnow, MailPlus and Mother&Baby. You can see a portfolio of her journalism here.
Her second book, Give Birth Like a Feminist, was published in 2019 by Harper Collins. Her most recent book My Period: find your flow and feel proud of your period! was published in August 2021 by Wren and Rook (Hachette).
Milli speaks globally on women’s experience in the birth room and has appeared on BBC Radio 2, BBC 5 Live, talkradio, and many leading podcasts including Deliciously Ella and The Irish Times Women’s Podcast. She writes a sporadic newsletter, The Mule.
In recent times Milli has become interested in ‘cancel culture’ and had her own experiences of this phenomenon. As a champion of female biology she is curious about the current misinformation about sex and gender and the implications of shifts in word definitions for women’s rights.
She is represented by Jane Graham Maw of Graham Maw Christie.
