Here are some comments from people that have attended the group –
The group is where I felt free to express myself whilst information on labour and birth allowed to empower myself.
Whether you’re expecting or have given birth it’s a coming together of minds to share experiences, and information in a supportive and friendly environment. It is a very relaxed evening that I thoroughly gain a lot from. It is reassuring to have the attendance of midwives at some of the sessions outside of the medical environment where you don’t have the pressure of time to hinder all of those burning questions you might have. Erika herself is an excellent facilitator who is a great listener and source of advice offering women the chance to explore ideas and options they may not have considered, empowering the woman to feel confident in her decisions whilst opening minds up to other possibilities.
I have gained so much from attending these sessions and made friends into the bargain!
I wish I’d found this group sooner. I only got to attend one session before the birth of my baby but it was an immense help in empowering me to resist advice to be induced and to just wait. I wanted a home birth and this group gave me the knowledge and confidence in my body to go for it.
Throughout the course of my pregnancy, the wonderful Positive Birth Group really set my mind at rest, helped to empower me and helped to focus me on all the positives. Erika’s lending library and the PBG meant I had enough knowledge to feel confident and deal with the situation when it arose.
I attended on a friends advice and so glad I did! I went in for my planned C Section (due to a breech baby) feeling empowered and confident I had control. I felt able to voice my concerns and they were heard thanks to the amazing support received at the group. I’m also now friends with a couple of the fellow Mummys even now 2.5yrs on ❤ it’s such a relaxed and easy going atmosphere to chat and voice concerns. I’ll definitely return should I be lucky enough to conceive baby 2 xxx
