Our Spring Hui was held at Horouta Marae in Porirua. A huge thanks to the marae for hosting us and the Wellington Homebirth Community for organising the event. It was a great opportunity to catch up with our homebirth regions and to reflect on the key issues facing homebirth in Aotearoa.
It was a very rainy start to the event, but we were made to feel very welcome and cosy.
