The Positive Birth Movement
Free Monthly Discussion in the Eastern Suburbs Sydney
A network of free discussion groups aiming to improve birth. Meetings in the Eastern Suburbs Sydney
“The positive birth movement is 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.
All our meet ups are at the Queens Park Kitchen or the playground adjoining.

The Positive Birth Movement started as a microscopic little egg and now suddenly we find it’s a strong and healthy five year old – it’s funny how these things go.
What began in 2012 as one small meeting in the living room of writer and campaigner Milli Hill, is now a global network of over 450 ‘real life’ groups, with a massive social media presence too. What began as a grassroots movement is now in the final stages of becoming a charity.
And we just keep on growing. We think this is because we break down the walls that the so-called ‘birth wars’ try to build between women. We don’t hold any one kind of birth up above another. We’re just concerned with every woman getting the best possible birth experience, for her, on that day.”
We have around 250 groups in the U.K, and over 200 in the rest of the world!
We have groups in 44 different countries!
