|Email item||Print item||
Empowering Birth Gozo is organising an informal interactive discussion about Birth Plans – Should I have one?
Some of the subjects that will be covered include: Can anyone really plan birth? Should I think about a birth plan or it’s best to leave everything in the hands of my medical provider? What kind of decisions will I have to make in preparing a birth plan?
The discussion will taking place at Dar Guzeppa Debono, Ghajnsielem, on Wednesday, the 26th of June at 6pm.
The Positive Birth Movement (PBM), which had its official launch in Gozo last month under the name Empowering Birth Gozo, is run by Senior Midwife Dr. Georgette Spiteri and Maternal Health & Parenthood Writer Daniela Grech Sultana.
These free-to-attend meet-ups, which will take place every month, are aimed at pregnant women, their partners, as well as parents.
The PBM is a global grassroots organisation with over 400 groups around the world. It was set up in 2012 by writer, birth campaigner and UK-based mum of 3 Milli Hill. There is also a branch in Malta.
Groups meet all around the world and are a place for women to get support and information, as well as learn more about their birth choices. All of the groups are connected by the PBM’s large social media network.
