The Birth Partner Project

Volunteer Birth & Postnatal Partners

No Woman Need Birth Alone

 

Our Purpose - For all women to have access to birth partner support during pregnancy, birth and the first weeks with their new-born baby

Our Mission - 

  • Support women who would otherwise be alone, to achieve better outcomes for both mother and baby in relation to pregnancy, birth and the early post-natal period

  • Increase women’s access to information, awareness of options, and sign-post to professional services where appropriate

  • Provide 24 hour support during labour and delivery

  • Liaise with other agencies to coordinate support for the overall well-being of the family

  • Influence policy, practice and public opinion in support of our charitable purposes

  • Encourage integration of women with different life experiences to support each other through pregnancy, the early weeks of motherhood, and beyond

  • Create an environment and organisational structure where our volunteers feel informed, supported and free from discrimination
