Each month we have a different topic of discussion but are also happy to discuss anything you wish regarding labour, birth and the fourth trimester. We share information, experience and support so that those attending can make informed decisions about their birth. We have regulars who return and very generously share their positive experiences of birth. This offers huge benefits for those who attend and are planning for their births. Everyone is welcome to join us – mums, dads, grandparents, birth workers and anyone else with an interest and passion in birth. 
We look forward to meeting you. We alternate our meetings between the 2nd Tuesday morning of one month, with the second Saturday afternoon of the following month. On Tuesday mornings we meet at Zoo Cafe and Saturday afternoons at Milk & Therapy.
