Join us as we meet up, link up and shake up birth!
The Positive North Movement aims to challenge the epidemic of negativity and fear that surrounds modern birth, and help change birth for the better. We are a global network of free to attend antenatal groups, linked up by social media. We connect pregnant women together to share stories, expertise and positivity about childbirth.
What is a PBM group?
The Positive Birth Movement is a global network of antenatal discussion groups. They are all FREE to access, and POSITIVE about birth.
They are a place for ALL pregnant women – regardless of their background, experience or choices – to come together and share experiences, thoughts, feelings and insight about childbirth. There is often also tea and cake!
Unlike traditional ‘antenatal classes’, in Positive Birth Movement groups, women listen to each other, rather than to a teacher. There is usually a ‘theme’ for discussion. Groups usually start with some introductions from the Facilitator, but after that, it’s over to the group to talk and share and learn from each other.
Positive Birth Movement groups aim to be a helpful part of your pregnancy; a warm and welcoming place to hear stories and ideas, to consider what you really want from your childbirth experience, and to challenge any fears or negative expectations you might have. They are also a place to build a network of friendship and support in your local area which we hope continues long after the birth of your baby.
Positive Birth Movement groups aim to complement your existing ante-natal input and they do not seek to replace medical advice. Before taking any action based on information you have received in a PBM group, please speak to your Health Care Professional.
