A Perth pregnancy support group, mother’s group, networking circle and tribe-builder… all rolled into one beautiful monthly meet-up!
The Birth Circle is a casual, monthly meet up for women… pregnant, birthing and mothering, and birth workers.
Together with two amazing women, Cat Fancote (birth photographer) and Tessa Simcox (midwife), I facilitate The Birth Circle with our aim being to support, inspire and encourage women to make informed birth and postpartum choices. It is a safe space with freedom to discuss your fears and concerns, meet like-minded women, and find confidence and inspiration for your journey to motherhood.
Our meets are held on the first Friday of the month, in the Community Space at The Organic Circle in Armadale. Each month we choose a topic for discussion where we ask questions, seek answers, share experiences, and support each other. Past topics have included What is a Positive Birth?, Antenatal Education Options in Perth, Building your Support Network, and Mental Health in Pregnancy and Postpartum. We also on occasion have guest speakers such as physiotherapists and other modalities. It is a truly wonderful pregnancy support group, mothers group, and tribe-building circle.
In our November (Friday the 1st) meet we’ll be exploring “Choosing Your Care Provider”, taking a look at the options for birth care providers in Perth and the models of care that these providers work within; what care you can expect to receive; how to ensure your choice of care provider aligns with what you want from your birth; and who is available to support you as a part of your care team. AND… when is it too late to change care providers!
You’ll be able to seek out wisdom from everyone in the circle, share experiences, support each other, and be informed. Speak with a midwife, doula, birth photographer, antenatal educator and counsellor.
We know that many of you come to these meets to connect with like-minded women, so at around 11am we will wrap up discussions to spend the next half an hour connecting and chatting over coffee, getting to know each other a bit better, and growing our tribes ?
All are welcome to join us. Arrive by 9:15am to grab a hot coffee and a delicious treat from the Organic Circle before we start.
