Supporting open conversations about birth
Past Event

Birth Café

2 May 2021

As part of ARRIVALS + DEPARTURES events, you're welcome to join us, eat cake and talk about birth.

Birth Café takes its lead from the Death Café movement, helping to provide a safe, non-judgmental space in which anyone and everyone is welcome to come and discuss their relationship to, and concept of, birth. 

Birth Café was conceived by Laura Godfrey-Isaacs - artist, midwife and birth activist. The aim is to support open conversations about birth in order to build understanding and respect for its psychosocial, cultural and bodily significance for everyone. It's also a great excuse to eat cake!
