What we're about

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. We aim to challenge the epidemic of negativity and fear that surrounds modern birth, and help change birth for the better. Join us as we meet up, link up and shake up birth!

We foster a positive, inclusive and welcoming environment: partners, family members, friends are all welcome. You can bring your kids along too – we have toys! We would also love to hear from you if you have positive birth stories to share.

We meet on the last Sunday of every month 11.00am – 12.00pm near Broadway Market.

And who am I? Rachel Francis, a former pregnancy massage therapist and baby massage instructor and generally passionate about all things positive birth.

PBM Hackney Meet Up

Needs a location

£5.00

We meet the last Sunday of the month near Broadway Market. Once you join I will send you an email with full registration instructions and venue details. As the meet ups are in my home, I do not publish the address online. The subject this month is 'when birth does not go to plan'. Getting or not getting the birth you really want is an important topic to discuss antenatally. At the PBM, we want to empower you and your partners with confidence and positivity. However,we must also accept things don't always go to plan. This topic is a chance to ask the 'what if..?' questions about birth. We always welcome positive birth stories - so please do come along if you have one to share! Parnters, parents and children welcome too.
