Bun + Oven Groups
Be connected with women at a similar time in their pregnancy. In small groups of 5-12 women you will meet with the midwife to answer questions and learn about the changes happening to your body. As your pregnancy develops you will be able to bring a support person to the last 3 sessions to learn all about labour, birth and what to expect in the first few weeks of being a new family.
Once all members have delivered we will gather to debrief and share experiences to help minimise uncertainty, reduce perceptions of trauma and meet the new additions to the team.
How are the groups allocated?
Women will be from 6-12 weeks pregnant when starting in a new group.
This allows the midwife to focus on key milestones in your pregnancy and ensure you feel supported in a group environment where women are at a similar stage to you.
If you do not fit the timing of the next group please contact us directly.
