Bristol Birth Collective Community Parents Group

We are taking a beak over the summer but we will be back in the autumn with a whole host of new resources and inspiring new sessions just for you!  Click on the link above to join our Face Book Group and stay updated.

Have a wonderful summer!

The Bristol Birth Collective founders are Nicola Nelson, Midwife & Sage Femme and Tara Thompson, Holistic Birth Doula & Thai Yoga massage therapist

The Bristol Birth Collective is a monthly community group (the third Friday of every month @ 7pm) for expectant and newly birthed parents in Bristol which launched on 21st October 2016 in BS2 offering free birth education, a friendly ear and support when you need it.

Who is it for? Everyone! Expectant parents, new parents and their supporters in and around Bristol.

Free support for you: If you have minor pregnancy aches and pains, want to learn some skills for birth or you're having challenges after your baby's birth, getting support can be tricky (and expensive!).

We’re working hard to bring you good quality free support.  Local yoga teachers, complementary therapists, doulas and midwives will be giving their time to come and speak at the group. You can get free information about slings, local support groups for breastfeeding.  If your support needs are beyond what we can offer, we will signpost you to someone who can support you better.

What will happen at the monthly sessions? We will be drawing on our combined skills and experience to bring you some really exciting content. There will be new birth skills to learn. Learn how to put together a birth plan that works for you and really communicates with your care givers, how to use techniques like Rebozo scarf massage for pregnancy, birth and postnatally, tips for getting your baby lined-up and in the optimal position for birth, ideas for putting together a postnatal care plan (this is SO important and often overlooked) and breastfeeding / bottle-feeding support for those arriving with their little ones.

There will also be plenty of opportunities to chat: it’s a social event!

Refreshments will be available.

You are welcome to bring cushions or a birth ball if you would prefer not to sit on a chair.  We look forward to meeting you!

How much does it cost? We give our time for free.  So it's helpful when parents feel able to make a contribution towards the venue hire and the tea / coffee fund contribution.  A suggested donation is £5 per person. If you are unable to make a contribution don’t let that stop you coming along, it’s for everyone!

How do I get to St Werburgh's Community Centre?  Just follow this link and you will find all the travel details you can imagine!

We look forward to meeting you there.
