The Parentcraft Room (at the back of antenatal clinic/antenatal scan department)
The Royal Surrey County Hospital
The launch of our new collaboration with the Royal Surrey's Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP).
Parking arrangements being finalised and will be posted on this event page in due course.
This month we will be discussing "My Birth Room", learning more about the planned partnership between MVP and PBM Guildford and celebrating over cake. There will be an opportunity to look around the RSCH delivery suite and MLU (subject to room vacancy).
We believe that every woman deserves a positive birth.
We are a grass roots movement, spreading positivity about childbirth via a global network of hundreds of free Positive Birth groups, linked up by social media.
We think a positive birth is one in which a woman has freedom of choice, access to accurate information, and feels in control, powerful and respected. We are a woman-centred movement and we respect all women’s humanrights to choose where and how they have their baby.
We think you can birth with positivity in hospital or at home, with or without medical intervention. You can have a positive caesarean, or a positive homewater birth.
Positive Birth is about approaching birth realistically, having genuine choice, and feeling empowered by your experience.
Our groups are discussion groups where we value all choices, and where all views are of equal value and equally heard. We will strive to create a kind, respectful and non-judgemental atmosphere in this group, respecting the confidentiality of those who wish to share personal information.
Each month we will explore a different aspect of pregnancy, birth and early parenthood.- www.positivebirthmovement.org
