Birth Preparation Essentials

birth preparation

These birth preparation essentials provide a range of information, ideas and tips to boost your knowledge and wellbeing for all births.

No two births are the same and your need for information, support and reassurance can vary. As a practitioner who has worked with expectant parents for almost 20 years, I passionately believe in good education for all births – not just your ideal birth.

These guides provide a foundation of essential knowledge, strategies and practical information as part of your labour and birth preparation so you know more of what to expect, what you can do and the questions to ask.

There is also focus on baby preparation – this can be as crucial as birth preparation so you are more informed for the first hours and days with your new baby.
