Positive birth movement in finland
Famlia is partnering with Positive Birth Movement. Positive Birth Movement's goal is to share information on positive birthing experiences and create peer networks between mothers.
Positive Birth Movement will be organizing monthly meetings during spring 2021 in Familia's office (Lintulahdenkatu 10, 7th floor) on the following Saturdays: 20.2, 20.3 and 17.4 from 10-12. Meetings may be switched to online if needed.
More information about Positive Birth Movement:
We offer monthly FREE, NON-COMMERCIAL, and OPEN to ALL peer to peer meetups for pregnant people, partners (or other birth companions), and new parents. This is not a course nor will there be a presenter or an expert coming to talk to you. Our goal is to create a community where you can share your stories and experiences, laugh and cry, receive loving support, and celebrate parenthood. We aim to challenge the epidemic of negativity and fear that surrounds modern birth and help change birth for the better.
