Homebirth in Aotearoa New Zealand welcomes stories that celebrate and remember the joys and heartbreaks that accompany motherhood. We honour women and families who have experienced trauma and loss of life at this most sacred time.

This is a safe place to ask questions, talk about your concerns and share your stories. It is a place to share recent news and articles about issues surrounding childbirth, choice in childbirth and reproductive rights for women.

The primary purpose of this group is to create and sustain a safe environment where members feel supported in choices around childbirth and where the choice to birth at home is respected and upheld as a safe and viable option for many women.
