Our Rich History

Our services and mission date back nearly thirty years! That’s thirty years of advocating for women’s choices, rights and informed decision making.

We are busy compiling the long history of the group and its purpose! But sadly we are constrained by the time factor and volunteers work loads! More will be published as soon as we can.

Who we support:

No matter where you are birthing, no matter what style of birth… and no matter who your medical care providers are.

We are an additional layer of educational and emotional support, available to you!

Newcastle Birth Movement
About Us:

We are here to listen to you – your feelings, your needs, your dreams (and your fears too).

We exist inside a large, shared community building named Pachamama House (meaning “Mother Earth”).

We have beautiful lounges, a resident massage therapist and a preloved maternity and baby clothing recycling room.

Treasure hunt and donate to take items home – help us raise our rent costs and help reduce your ecological footprint.

For our events we have full use of the main buildings’ workshop rooms and yoga space.

We provide free birth doula Q&A; free birth counsellor debriefs; and other supports too!

How we work:

We are run by professional volunteers, passion and fundraising.

Our volunteers and friends include: birth doulas; midwives; birth educators; counsellors; natural health experts; massage therapists; and a variety of other pregnancy and family professionals and specialists.

Enjoy not-for-profit workshops and courses – and by doing so – help us cover our costs.

(Dads, partners and other family members, all very welcome). our

“I was so thrilled to discover and be able to attend these birth meetings during my pregnancies! I loved connecting with the community, sharing stories, gaining insightful information and feeling empowered in my choices around pregnancy and birth. The friendships I made were strong and they continue to flourish to this day”.

“Relaxed meetings with great facilitation which makes everyone attending feel welcome and supported, including partners. In the meetings Iā€™ve been to, the discussions have been informative and positive. Mothers and partners can share their experiences with the group if they like, and others can benefit”.
