Welcome to the Newcastle Bith Movement Project.
Bringing together pregnant women, women who have birthed, supporters and local birth workers.
All meetings run with an experienced facilitator, creating a warm, welcoming, non judgmental space.
Come any day and get free access to doula chats, birth planning chats, birth library and much much more. Some examples of our events include:
Prenatal Yoga on Saturdays, 9:25am-10:45am
Mums 'n Bubs programs (yoga, workshops, mums groups)
Run by the areas most long standing, hypnobirthing educator, Natalie Meade. Natalie is a passionate, caring and highly skilled/experienced educator. From her not-for-profit hypnobirthing classes you help to fundraise our rent! Thank you for your support and congratulations on choosing private birth education for your family and yourself.
Message us about what your needs and desires are for birth, and we will help you find a great doula match for you. We have many doulas that open the space as their volunteer community service to local women and families.
Come any day, or ideally make a more private appointment time, and have a complimentary birth counselling chat about your birth anxiety, fears, worries or birth debrief about a negative birth experience that you desire to heal from.
After birth, come along and be cared and supported through our Fourth Trimester Yoga Programs and our Mums and Bubs, Six Week Facilitated Workshop Programs. Many of our Volunteer Team are wonderful postpartum doulas/massage therapists and postpartum yoga teachers.
Come along to our Breastfeeding workshops, run by local Thompson Method Educators, IBCLCS and the Australian Breastfeeding Association.
Come along for a chat as a mum/parent anytime. We are here for a cup of tea. And keep an eye out for our various parenting workshops. We like to run workshops for baby feeding, healthy boundaries and self-care and more!
We have a few beautiful pregnancy massage therapists that massage from our space and also provide mobile services where they are able.

Natalies’ Birth Education course enabled me to have a calm pregnancy and an empowering birth experience. My husband and I both learnt a great deal about natural birthing and nurturing parenting methods.
Natalie taught my husband and I amazing life skills that we have applied with our parenting technique and our work.
The classes definitely helped me to cope…In my birth I chose some minor interventions and I felt in control and happy about my choices!
Natalie gave me birthing confidence and confidence as a mother. The relaxation skills I learnt – I still use today
