One of the best days of the Babes year is our Annual Photoshoot.

And we are so passionate about staying authentic and real.Read more

Our Labour Support Team is a special bunch of women. They are women who volunteer their time to ensure no woman is unsupported during childbirth. They put themselves through training, put lives on hold when on call and do all it takes to be available for massive lengeths of time. Often under the influence of bad hospital coffee! Holly is one of our Labour Support team and she wrote these words about her most recent labour experience with one of the women of The Babes Project.Read more

When our experience doesn't reflect that expectation we can find ourselves feeling unworthy and incompetent.Read more
