Are you considering a home birth?

 Why not come along to one of our monthly meetings and talk to parents with experience of both home and hospital birth and discuss:

What happens during and after a home birth?

How safe is home birth?

Transferring to hospital: why it might happen?

Is a home birth suitable for me?

Our local home birth support group is run by volunteers who have experience of both home and hospital birth.  It welcomes pregnant women, their partners and/or birth partners from both the Islington and Hackney branches, as well as other interested parties such as midwives and doulas to discuss any questions or concerns you might have about home birth. .  

We also have a home birth yahoo group which you can sign up to by sending a blank email to, or like our Facebook page.

Please check back here for details of our next Homebirth support group meeting.

General information about home birth can be found on the NCT web pages.
