We are a global network of free to attend antenatal groups, linked up by social media. We connect pregnant women together to share stories, expertise and positivity about childbirth. We aim to challenge the epidemic of negativity and fear that surrounds modern birth, and help change birth for the better. Join us as we meet up, link up and

shake up birth!

The Positive Birth Movement is all about:
PBM believe that every woman deserves a positive birth. The movement exists because, at a global level, many women are currently not having a positive birth.

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. Usually with tea and cake, too.
