What We Do

Homebirth Information Evenings

Canterbury Homebirth Association are running monthly information evenings for prospective home birthers.  This is a great opportunity to meet and talk to a home birth couple, and a home birth midwife about any questions or concerns you or your partner or family might have. You can find details of our next Information Evening on our Calendar page, or on our Facebook page.

Antenatal and Parenting Classes

Home Birth Focus is a workshop facilitated by a home birth midwife and a consumer facilitator (a woman who has experience of home birth).  The workshop is focused on active birth, where a labouring woman is free to move around and adopt the position that best suits her needs at any moment. This workshop is specifically designed for women planning a home birth and women, their partners and/or other support people are welcome.  Visit their website…
