Western Cape: Home Birth Gathering
Home Birth is a valid and safe yet overlooked birthing option.
Here in South Africa, we have one of the highest caesarean rates in the world (on average 70% in private hospitals). Women are realising that in a hospital environment their options and freedom to give birth as they wish, are often limited through hospital routine protocol and intervention.
This gathering is for those who have given birth at home, for those who have wanted home births, for those who are planning a home birth or are thinking about it or are just curious.
It is also for those whose home births did not go as they had wished. We also welcome midwives who attend home births and those who have supported mothers giving birth at home (partners and doulas).
This is an informal event of sharing and being able to have your questions answered. There will also be opportunity to meet and speak to midwives, doulas and others who have had home births or are planning to. There will be opportunity for discussion.
Refreshments will be served.
