What is 'When Push Comes To Shove'?

When push comes to shove is essentially a birth movement. 

The creator of the movement Nickita Starck began the campaign after she received incredible support from her friend and independent midwife Andy Parker. Nickita was determined to raise the money needed to supply IM'S with insurance. While simultaneously spreading awareness about choices in childbirth. 

As a birth worker herself Nickita feels passionate about autonomy in birth and has made it her mission to educate parents everywhere that they have full control of their bodies and everyone should be entitled to information in order to make informed choices about their birth. 


We are raising the voice of birth by bringing the subject of birth into the mainstream narrative.  Birth effects everyone.  Along with the amazing single BREATHE AGAIN we are talking to as many people as possible about birth & birth choices on our growing YouTube Channel & we will begin filming the birth documentary in the Spring of 2021.
