The Birth Stories Circle is for pregnant women/expectant couples and mums and dads. This is a lovely place to share your story, hear other stories, to talk, and also celebrate the amazing ways new people are brought into the world. All stories welcome and celebrated – unusual stories, complicated births and straightforward births.
