Active Birth Centre
London, United Kingdom


The Active Birth Centre was founded by Janet Balaskas in the early 1980’s. Her vision was to create an oasis for pregnant and new mothers and their partners and babies, with a programme of empowering classes and courses, as well as a complementary therapy clinic. Her dream was to create a place where the importance of the beginning of life – the primal years, was honoured and paramount and took its influence out into the world. Today the Active Birth Centre is the place she dreamed of. Janet continues to lead the centre and is assisted by her colleague Lynn Murphy with whom she has worked for many years. They are joined by a team of highly skilled professionals who share the Active Birth philosophy and vision: to encourage, support and inspire women to become actively involved in their pregnancy and birth so that they become the loving parents, and healthy families of the future. It is a testament to the ethos of the Active Birth Centre that most members of the Active Birth team have worked together for years.
