Venus Homebirth Team celebrate two year anniversary

Venus Homebirth team celebrate two year anniversary with families

In January 2022 Venus Homebirth Team at West Middlesex University Hospital celebrated two years of supporting women and birthing people who chose to birth at home.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, celebrations to mark the two-year anniversary couldn’t take place until July. Over 150 people turned up to the event, including families who were cared for over the past two years, staff who were previously part of the team, as well as close colleagues and student midwives.

The picnic held at Syon park was celebrated with cupcakes and a rainbow cake. It was a lovely day for the team to see families again and to share birth stories and experiences.

During the peak of the pandemic many homebirth teams had to close down, but the Venus Homebirth team remained open to help support expectant parents. This was an incredible achievement and would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of the entire team.
