Every woman and every pregnancy is different; we believe that each birth is a natural and unique event. Our experienced midwives will be there to provide tailored one to one care, guiding and supporting you through labour and the birth of your baby.
Our multidisciplinary team have developed a comprehensive guide to help you to prepare for labour and childbirth. This module was developed by a multidisciplinary team who have created a module, which aims to empower you to prepare for, and navigate the physical and emotional challenges of labour. It is designed to complement the information you receive from your caregiver and your antenatal education classes.
- Give you tools to help you prepare for the physical and emotional challenges of labour.
- Discuss coping strategies and pain relief.
- Guide you through the first, second and third stage of labour.
