Whilst some of us may birth, all of us are born. Birth Cafe provides a safe, non-judgmental space in which anyone and everyone is welcome to come and talk about their relationship to, and concept of birth, in order to build understanding and respect for its psychosocial, cultural and bodily significance for us all. As Birth increasingly takes centre stage, through popular TV programmes, celebrity pregnancies and NHS maternity scandals, what should be a momentous event can seem reduced to a procedure or ‘event’ devoid of its wider significance.
Birth Cafe is based on the Death Cafe model, and is a welcoming, inclusive and diverse space. The session will be convened by Laura Godfrey-Isaacs, birth activist, midwife and artist.
