Thursday, 29th December - Newbury Home Birth Group

Australians don't mince their words and so this is why I was quite taken with this book about pregnancy and childbirth. Rather than being a prescriptive guide to what's normal by an expert, it's a round-up of stories from mums and dads who are honest and open about their experiences. It helped me so much and I always like to get international points of view, so I thought I'd donate it to the homebirth group run by Claire.

Newbury Home Birth Group offers peer support for expectant parents who are considering having their baby within the comfort of their own home. The group meets monthly to share experiences and to help you make an informed choice. Supported by local midwives and doulas as well as parents who have experienced home birth first hand, we welcome you to join us in a relaxed environment for a cuppa and an informal chat.

The group also has useful resources that can be loaned to expectant parents. We have a range of highly recommended text books, leaflets, DVDs and also now have birthing pools available to hire free of charge.

Thank you Claire!


  1. Sounds like a great book and much better when people tell it like it is! Well done on your continued effort:-)

  2. Thank you so much - the book will be much appreciated. Sounds like a really interesting read. So kind of you to think of the group and the other mums and dads who will be able to borrow it. Hope to see you at the next meeting on the 19th if you can make it.
