Auckland Home Birth Support Groups together with Home Birth Aotearoa warmly invite you to come along to our National Spring Hui, to be held at the Umupuia Marae, Auckland.

We invite representatives and members of Regional Home Birth Groups, Home Birth Midwives and anyone identifying positively with home birth in Aotearoa to gather with us for some in-depth korero. Come for a day or stay overnight. This is a family friendly event and we have a commitment to meet the needs of our children and whanau.

The program is yet to be confirmed but will include:

@ celebrating recent achievements
@ the Annual General Meeting of Home Birth Aotearoa Trust
@ the current state of home birth in Aotearoa
@ where to from here? Strategy going forward.
@ woman to woman support
@ how to start up/re-energise local support groups
@ politics of birth in Aotearoa
@ deep nutrition
@ home birth, bonding & relationships

As always we look forward to our time sharing and connecting with each other and it is our hope that we will all leave refreshed and re-energised.

Home BIrth Aotearoa will cover costs for regional representatives to travel to hui and other members are encouraged to come along under their own steam.

Costs of hui accommodation and food are covered by Home Birth Aotearoa (around $50 per preson) but we welcome any contribution you are able to make towards these costs. Any koha can be made online or onsite, contact us for bank account details.

For inquiries please contact Sharon Knightbridge at, or leave a message and we will get back to you. Registration details and information is available on request.

Birth isn’t something we suffer, but
something we actively do, and exalt in!
