Home Birth Support Group UK
For us, all births start at home – some stay there and my Home Birth Transfer Is Not A Failure, blog post discusses this in more detail.
We have regular topics of the month and our birth stories range from home freebirth, birth before arrivals, to planned in labour caesareans, hospital transfers and inductions.
We also have access to a range of group discounts.
Our members are pretty fond of the group too – here are some of their words.
I haven’t birthed yet, but I joined because I had decided I wanted to have this baby at home and my lovely friend sent me an invitation to join. Being here has helped me think about the different aspects of home birth and imagine how it might be for us. It’s a really supportive space with lots of knowledge! Also the birth stories are really inspiring!
I had my baby before finding the group (homebirth) but it makes me so happy being able to advise other women and also to see other stories that are so similar to my own when in the real world stories like mine are few and far between!💗
I found the group because I KNEW I couldn’t have another baby in hospital. I wanted to be at home after a massive trust issue with my local (assigned) hospital.
So finding this group not only inspired me, but it supported my rights to choose xx
I had always wanted a home birth with all 5 babies but was never brave enough or knew I was aloud until I found this group that gave me the info and confidence to birth no 5 at home.
This group is an amazing source of information and positive stories. I didn’t really know what a homebirth entailed versus MLU or Labour ward. The info here helped me to make my decision that I will (hopefully!) be having one. It has also taken away a lot of anxiety around it. Thanks!
I 100% would have gone to hospital if it wasn’t for this group! So glad I found it and you all gave me confidence to birth at home. I recommend it to everyone I meet thinking about home birthing x
Some of our members stories can be found on my blog and in my photo galleries.
