“A POSITIVE BIRTH MEANS A BIRTH IN WHICH A WOMAN FEELS SHE HAS FREEDOM OF CHOICE, ACCESS TO ACCURATE INFORMATION, AND THAT SHE IS IN CONTROL, POWERFUL AND RESPECTED.
Positive Birth Movement
Positive Birth Brisbane is part of The Positive Birth Movement which is a grass roots movement, spreading positivity about childbirth via a global network of free Positive Birth groups, linked up by social media.
The Positive Birth Movement believes that every woman deserves a positive birth. But what does this mean?
A positive birth means a birth in which a woman feels she has freedom of choice, access to accurate information, and that she is in control, powerful and respected. A birth that she approaches, perhaps with some trepidation, but without fear or dread, and that she then goes on to enjoy, and later remember with warmth and pride.
Positive Birth meetings are a place for ALL pregnant women and their partners – 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!
Positive Birth is also about women’s birth choices and our aim is to facilitate an environment in which families can come together to ask questions, listen to diverse opinions, feel protected and nurtured in a space that will hold no judgement.
Positive Birth 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 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 Positive Birth group, please speak to your Health Care Professional.
