The Birth Network brings together like-minded birth professionals and work with a strong collaborative and mutually supportive ethos. Our local area groups meet in person regularly and members work together to provide the best antenatal and postnatal services for families. Our experience and expertise cover your whole journey, from pre-conception to pregnancy to birth to new baby.
Our aim is to help families feel well-informed and well-supported throughout this important time of their lives. Our experts offer a range of services, including treatments for fertility, antenatal support and education, birth preparation, attending births, guidance on baby feeding and new baby care, the post-postnatal period and making those early months with baby the best they can be.
The Birth Network is growing, with new local area groups being set up around the UK. Find your TBN Local Area Group here. Find out how to becoming a TBN Local Area Facilitator here. Or contact us to with any questions you may have.
