Homebirth Queensland – Mothers & Midwives Working Together

Welcome to Homebirth Queensland Inc.

We are a group of mothers, Midwives, Doulas, and our families connected by the vision of enabling true choice in childbirth. We view birthing as a family rather than as a medical experience, an event in our lives where we celebrate the birth of our babies rather than their deliveries.

We run Brisbane and Gold Coast based homebirth support groups for pregnant women and families, particularly those considering, planning or simply curious about birthing at home. Visiting Midwives and Doulas are also very welcome to join in these support groups.

At present, we do not publish the magazine, “Down to Birth”. However we do have back editions filled with wonderful birth stories, informative articles and beautiful pictures. Please visit our shop to purchase these.

Feel free to explore our website, or come along and join us in person at one of our meetings. For more information on venue addresses and meeting times, please see our Support Groups page.

Also, why not check out our Facebook page where you will find inspiring home birth stories, support group shout-outs, and much more. Don’t forget to click the “Like” button!
