FREE antenatal gatherings
Positive Birth Movement York Monthly Gatherings
Here’s some info on the FREE antenatal gatherings I help to each month as part of the Positive Birth Movement global network of support for positive birth. You can find out more about the York Positive Birth Movement group on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/positivebirthmovementyork/
These are brilliant ways to meet other parents to be and chat in a friendly and informal way about all things birth. I cannot stress enough that this group is for ALL pregnant women and couples regardless of how/where they are planning on birthing their baby. This is for women planning a hospital birth, a home birth, caesarean birth, birth centre, for women expecting their 1st baby or their 6th. We don’t care if you’re a ‘gimme-all-the-drugs’ kinda gal, or a joss-stick-burning hippy - or anywhere in between. You are all very welcome to come and chat birth and drink tea and much biscuits!
It's a brilliant opportunity to meet other local mums and dads, and to get evidence-based information from the groups facilitators and other members of the group (we usually have a midwife, a doula, a hypnobirthing teacher - me! there) on everything to do with birth and your choices locally without judgement (all my credentials are here). The gatherings are to help you understand the choices you have in your pregnancy and birth, get support, feel the love of other pregnancy couples and to understand that you are the expert on your body & your baby and only you know what’s going to work for you. Whatever your choices, whatever path your birth takes, there are things you can put in place to make the experience a positive one.
If you fancy coming along either drop me an email or let me know via the Facebook group. It’s free but for venue insurance purposes and biscuit buying we need to know who’s coming along.
