honouring birth as
emotional and spiritual -
as well as physical.
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!
We are hear 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 across the hall, a preloved maternity and baby clothing recycling room – come and treasure hunt and adopt some items – donations of money and/or goods are appreciated for those in a position to help (we have no funding for our rent other than by raising it with community help!).
Our recycled room also provides free items for mums in need (just let us know, come and chat!).
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!

“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”.
We do it all for you!
“Relaxed meetings with great facilitation which makes everyone attending feel welcome and supported, including partners. In the meetings I’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”.
