PROSPECTIVE parents interested in having their baby at home can find out more at information meetings.

Dorset County Hospital's Cygnet Homebirth Team of midwives hold a regular meeting on the first Thursday of each month.

The meetings start at 7.30pm and are held in the Children’s Centre on Damers Road in Dorchester and are open to anyone who would like to find out more about the birthing pools which are available for hire and giving birth at home.

The Cygnet Homebirth Team is going from strength to strength. Not only does the team hold one of the highest homebirth rates in the country, but they have also been shortlisted into the final five of the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) Team of the Year Award.

The team can be contacted on 01305 253169.
