The Hull and East Yorkshire Home Birth Support Group was set up in October 2011 by local women who have all given birth to their children at home, and want to be able to support other parents to have a positive home birth experience.
The group currently meets on the third Monday evening/day time of each month and is also attended by local midwives, doulas, hypnobirthing practitioners, breastfeeding peer supporters and antenatal teachers, many of whom have had home births themselves, and can offer additional information and support. Everyone is welcome – partners, along with other birth partners, other children and friends. The meetings are a great opportunity to meet other people who have had or are having a home birth, ask any questions, seek reassurance and support.
For more info check out their website here or follow them on facebook. They also have a closed discussion group on Facebook – search for Hull and East Yorkshire Home Birth Discussion Group.
