Positive Birth Antenatal Workshops


The workshops we offer are a little different to standard antenatal workshops.  We have written these workshops based on our main aim to promote women’s rights and choices in childbirth.  The workshops are also helpful for your partner to attend as the content covered is also about giving them the information to support you.

Our Antenatal Workshops are currently being reviewed for funding – Update here January 2022

Positive Birth Discussion Online

The meet up is very informal and is for any mum/parents planning, expecting or has had her baby.  Women will more often than not be told they can or cant do something, so we want to make sure our classes and groups allow enough time for you to talk, the most important thing is that you get an opportunity to discuss what you want to talk about.  The group facilitator will not give medical or clinical advice.  However we can support you in exploring a range of things such as;

  • Your options
  • How you feel
  • We can give you information
  • We can signpost you for other support
  • We aim to empower you
  • Give you confidence
  • Help address your fears or anxieties for birth

The groups are very informal.  More information about our group events can also be found on our Facebook page

These groups are online every 3 months. 


Pregnancy One to one Support

This is currently offered only in Solihull.  This support is offered to you and is tailored individually to meet your needs.  If you are pregnant this service is available to you.  The service is ideal for any woman/person who is experiencing high levels of stress and anxiety in their pregnancy and she could benefit from some additional support to prepare for birth.  We want to help support women to have a positive birth experience and this means supporting them in their own homes.

We do not take over and tell you what to do, we help you explore your options and support you in the decisions you want to make, this is important for women who are feeling pressured to make a decision or for those who feel like they have no choice. We do not give clinical or medical advice.  Our aim is to give you more time to explore and prepare for the arrival of your baby.  Some women might like so help communicating with their maternity health care team, although we cant do this for you, we can give you the support to do it. This support is their for your partner too.  Talking through your anxieties and exploring ways to cope can be really helpful for some women.

If you think this support is for you, then you can refer yourself or you can discuss the service with your midwife and they can refer you.  All you need to do is contact us via email or phone 07842 024480 to let us know you would like some support.

We are currently only able to offer support via email or phone.

Walk and Talk

The Walk and Talk groups have been a massive success for us. However the core funding has now ran out and so we are looking for further funding. We hope to be continuing them in early Spring 2022 – most up to date walks are on our FB page. 

We are applying for funding to continue Walk and Talk in North Solihull.
