Event description
For those interested in exploring homebirth and those who wish to support them with stories, experience and wisdom

About this event

It is open to everyone who wishes to find out more about homebirth, support those interested in having a homebirth or who wish to tell their homebirth story to support others with the option. This is a free group but we do welcome donations to cover the tea and biscuits and resources available (suggestion £2 per person)

The topics that are regularly discussed in the group include practical issues and what you might need, how to get support from the maternity services for a home birth, options for when things don’t go to plan, role of partners and what they can do to support during a homebirth, how siblings can be involved.

Our group has several aims:

  • To make space for considering homebirth if you have not yet decided where you would like to birth your baby
  • To provide a group where those planning a home birth may feel supported, and normal
  • To provide a safe space to explore any questions or concerns; practical, physical or emotional
  • To welcome parents back to give encouragement to others who want / need it
  • To share positive stories of birth regardless of the outcome or place of birth
