Event Details

Join us for a free monthly event in North Haledon,NJ the first Sunday of the month. From 6:30pm-8pm 

SEPTEMBER TOPIC; The last days of pregnancy (celebrating this time, coping with it, issues around induction etc)

Our Positive Birth Movement group is FREE to access, and POSITIVE about birth. It is 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, such as 'Place of Birth', 'Birth Plans', or 'Hopes and Fears'. 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.

Some PBM groups are run by birth professionals such as Doula's, Midwives, or Childbirth teachers. Others are facilitated by women who are simply passionate about birth as a positive experience.

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.

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. 

Positive Birth Movement:

Our Manifesto

We are a grass roots movement, spreading positivity about childbirth via a global network of free Positive Birth groups, linked up by social media.

We believe that every woman deserves a positive birth.

We think a positive birth means:

  • Women are where they want to be
  • Choices are informed by reality not fear
  • Women are listened to and treated with respect and dignity
  • Mothers are empowered and enriched
  • Memories are warm and proud

Our movement exists because, at a global level, many women are not currently having a positive birth.

We hold the birth experience to be of fundamental importance, to mothers, to fathers, to babies, to families and to society.

We wish to change birth for the better.

We aim to:

·      Challenge the culture of negativity and fear that exists around birth
·      Share positive birth experiences
·      Share information about choices and rights in childbirth
·      Encourage women to raise their expectations of childbirth

We will do this by:

·      Establishing a network of free to attend positive birth groups
·      Linking all groups together via social media to build a global network of shared expertise,              power and positivity.
·      Working together to challenge the culture of fear that surrounds birth.
·      Empowering women to approach birth differently.


Please join us each month as we discuss a different topic.
