  • Home birth? Birth Centre? Hospital? Wherever you plan to give birth, talking about it can help you to prepare for a positive birth experience.
  • Come along to a meeting:
  • We'd love to hear from you!
  • Send us your questions
  • Useful birth resources
Our next meeting will be held on {{NextMeetingDate.Date}} from {{NextMeetingDate.TimeFrom}} until {{NextMeetingDate.TimeTo}}.

For directions, please see {{NextMeetingDate.Directions}}

There will be the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about homebirth and hear from experienced homebirthers!

We will have plenty of time for chat and everyone is welcome. We look forward to seeing new and familiar faces and we welcome birth stories and shared experiences.

The group is run by volunteers and we welcome donations towards room hire and refreshments. We suggest a contribution of £2 per person, or whatever you are able to give.

We hope to see you there!
Our Homebirth support group is open to all parents who are thinking about planning a home birth, whether you are undecided and wanting to explore your birth choices or already feeling that home birth is for you.

Exeter Homebirth Group do not condone or encourage unassisted birth or freebirthing. We believe in maintaining the safety of mother and baby at all times. We encourage women and their families to make informed decisions and we respect their decisions.

We welcome birth stories at Homebirth Groups and we don't feel it is appropriate to censor their telling. We feel it is as important to share stories where homebirths were not achieved, as when they are, as this is the reality. What we hope to hear are stories where women have positive experiences, where they felt well supported and felt involved in any decision-making. When women and their families do not feel they have had a positive experience we aim to signpost them to appropriate professionals.
The following listing shows the date, time and venue for our forthcoming meetings. If you require any further information please contact us using the contact us page.

We have inflatable birth pools available for hire. They are all professional pools by Birth Pool In a Box/The Good Birth Company and you can find more information and the dimensions of pools on their website. We have regular and mini pools available for hire. We charge £30 hire for the pool and inflate/deflate pump to cover our costs, but you will also need to buy a sterile liner from The Good Birth Company. We have a discount code which you are welcome to use for 10% off the liner and anything else you might want from The Good Birth Company.

Please contact Alice Chapman at alicec01@hotmail.com to discuss birth pool hire, or visit our facebook group to chat about the benefits of birthing in water!

If you are interested in proceeding with a pool booking please download and complete the 'Birth Pool Hire Form'.
We have a number of books and DVDs which you are welcome to borrow on the subject of homebirth, birth and parenting. As we unable to bring every book to every meeting, so please have a look at our full list and send us an email if you would like to borrow something specific. Borrowing is free , but we take a returnable deposit of £5 per items as we have lost many precious resources in the past! We understand that life is often very busy and there is no rush to return items, but we do need them back eventually so that others can benefit from borrowing them.

We also have many back issues of Juno magazine and The Green Parent Magazine which you are welcome to borrow, as well as a code to get a free copy of the current Juno Magazine.
