The Positive Birth Movement (PBM) will be launching in Gozo. This organisation will be hosting free-to-attend meet-ups aimed at pregnant women, their partners, as well as parents. The PBM is a global grassroots organisation with over 400 groups around the world.
PBM Gozo will be run by Senior Midwife Dr. Georgette Spiteri and Maternal Health & Parenthood Writer Daniela Grech Sultana. The group will be launched on social media on Mother’s Day and will hold the first monthly meet up in June. The date, time and location of each meet-up will be communicated every month.
The PBM was set up in 2012 by birth campaigner and mum of 3 Milli Hill. Groups meet all around the world and are a place for women to get support and information, as well as learn more about their birth choices. All of the groups are connected by the PBM’s large social media network.
The aim of the groups is to create a space for women and their partners to make their voices heard, to feel empowered and build a community which supports women and birth. By coming together, in real life and online, and sharing experiences, feelings, knowledge and wisdom, women and society can create a movement which advocates for positive childbirth.
