Home Birth Support Group

HBSG

The Home Birth Support Group meets on the first Sunday of every month from 11am-1pm.  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.
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 allow you to consider home birth 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

 

This group is a drop-in group and you do not need to book.  This is a free group but we do welcome donations to cover the tea and biscuits and resources available (suggestion £2) .

 2017 session dates:
The group restarts on 5th Feb and continues on 5th Mar, 2nd Apr, 7th May, 4th June, 2nd July, 6th Aug, 3rd Sept, 1st Oct, 5th Nov, 3rd Dec all from 11am-1pm.
