What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


We're raising funds to buy 2 new birthing pools for our free loan scheme.

We are HOME BIRTH NORFOLK, a volunteer run support group for women and their families who are considering, planning for or have had a home birth.

Every woman has the right to birth in the place of her choice, and at the Home Birth Norfolk Support Group we offer peer support and signpost to information regarding birth choices and the options available. We provide this support through social gatherings around Norfolk and our Facebook group, Home Birth Norfolk.

We currently have a single very busy birth pool which we loan out for free. Currently there is more demand than we are able to cater for and we would love to be able to help as many home birthing families in the region to achieve the watery birth they dream of. We do not believe that water home births should be reserved for those who can afford it. It should be accessible to all who desire it.

By donating to our cause, you will be helping to create empowered, positive birthing experiences for mummies and babies and proud, confident parents. Yay!

We will buy the new pools and pumps direct from Birth Pool in a Box who have given us a discounted rate.

Birth Pool in a Box Pro pool £132 each including VAT, plus Submersible pumps and inflatable pumps, Shipping, JustGiving fees = £405

Please do get in touch with us if you'd like to know more about our FREE birth pool loan scheme and how much it means to us and birthing women in Norfolk. Seek us out on Facebook at Home Birth Norfolk .

Thank you,

Siobhán and Paula

      Water pooling during labour is so incredibly soothing. I hope you reach and then smash your target. Thank you on behalf of all the woman who will benefit from your amazing efforts!
