information SERVICE DETAILS

The Home Birth Support Group meets online (during Covid-19 and will resume face to face once restrictions have lifted)

The Home Birth Support Group meets on the first Sunday of every month from 11:00am - 1:00pm. It is open to everyone who wishes to find out more about home birth, support those interested in having a home birth or who wish to tell their home birth 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 home birth, 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 £2.00).
