The aim of these groups is to connect women and families with local information and support so that they may make informed decisions about their birth.
We believe that every woman deserves a positive birth. We believe that a positive birth is one in which a woman has freedom of choice, access to accurate information, and feels in control, powerful and respected. We think you can birth with positivity in a hospital or at home, with or without medical intervention. You can have a positive caesarean, or a positive home water birth. Positive Birth is about approaching birth realistically, having genuine choice, and feeling empowered by your experience.
The Positive Birth Movement has groups all over the country that are free to attend, as well as a huge community on social media.
Positive Birth Hackney has been running since December 2013, and is open to anyone who wishes to discuss birth past, present and future, be it in a professional or a personal capacity (parents, parents-to-be, birth partners - male or female, midwives, doulas, antenatal instructors, birth preparation teachers, etc), in an informal setting.
We usually meet on the Second Tuesday Evening of the Month in Hackney. For further information, including location details of our next meeting, please email Elizabeth at PBMHackney@gmail.com.
