This is a chance for all women and their families who are interested in the idea of having their baby at home to come along and find out a bit more about Birmingham Women’s dedicated homebirth team. The latest research suggests that for many women, home is the safest place to give birth, and yet many families haven’t considered it as an option.
Sessions are held by midwives from the homebirth team, and all women who are booked at Birmingham Womens Hospital, and are expecting to have a normal birth, are encouraged to consider having a homebirth. Booking for homebirth widens your options for birth, as you are free to change your mind at any point.
Come along, ask questions, discover the family-centred approach the Homebirth Team takes to care, find out about why home might just be the best place for you, and explore our offer of a birth pool for every woman who wishes to use a pool at home. You also get to hear about the birth stories of women who have delivered at home with the team, air any concerns or just find out more.

DECEMBER 2016: UPDATE
WE STILL HAVE SPACES in DECEMBER WITH COURSES @ COMMUNITY VENUES
WE HAVE GOT AVAILABILITY FOR JANUARY, FEBRUARY and MARCH 2017.
Scroll down to book your course on-line now.
If you have any problem or question when booking your antenatal class on our system, or if you have special requirements (e.g. mobility) simply email email@example.com or ring 0121 318 2377 and leave a message . Our office is not manned 24/7 but if you send an email or leave a voice mail, it will be picked up within 48 working hours.
In general, we have greater availability on the community courses due to the larger room size, whereas we are limited in the hospital and courses fill quickly. Community course cover the same topics as the hospital courses and you still do get a chance to do a tour of the delivery suite / birthing centre on a Sunday afternoon.
When a course is fully booked, we can not add up any extra participant but you can get onto our waiting list if you wish to.
If you have booked onto another antenatal course with a non-NHS organisation and would like to join one of our monthly hospital tours, please email us directly firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- The name of the provider of the antenatal course you are booked on
- Your estimated due date
- Your full name and the Birmingham Women's Hospital Number
We will then get back to you with a date and time.
BOOK ONLY ONE COURSE and aim to attend the course when you are about 30-35 weeks pregnant (or a bit earlier if expecting multiples). If you book more than one course, you risk losing your place on both. We want to ensure that as many parents-to-be as possible have the opportunity to attend our courses. BOOK ONLY ONE TICKET (one ticket is valid for up to 2 people).
