The Nesters Pregnancy and Beyond group is a place for pregnant mums and birthing people to come together and chat about all things pregnancy, birth and early parenting.
It runs weekly - alternating between in-person at The Beacon Centre in Exeter one week, and on Zoom the following week. You can come to either or both.
Once you've had your baby we welcome you to continue to come to the group during your 'fourth trimester' which is up until around the 3 month mark postnatally.
All ethnicities welcome. We are LGBT+ friendly. and welcome partners along with pregnant mums.
We chat, drink tea and eat cake! We also have various craft activities or short talks about subjects relevant to the group.
The group is supported by the Pregnancy Peer Supporter Network, a group of volunteers who have lived experience of birthing during the pandemic` and are trained to support birthing people. They are not medically trained, and cannot give advice nor tell you what to do but offer a listening ear and can help you explore your options to find the best choice for you.
Free street parking is available outside The Beacon Centre. There is also a bus stop right outside.
You can also hire a birth pool, rent a TENS machine or a birth ball from us. You can also take advantage of our fabulous collection of hand picked birth books. and borrow one for free.
