Labour and Birth Challenges



Challenges & Decisions In Labour & Birth focuses on the issues that could impact your labour and birth and the decisions you make. This guide looks at how you can manage these challenges and what your options are:

  • Position of your baby

  • Feeling overwhelmed
  • A fast labour
  • Being Induced

You can access this guide online and download resources to read and use at home.

  • develop your own birth plan with questions and strategies
  • think about what you might need and what you can do
  • know what questions to ask
  • know more about potential challenges and how to manage them
  • think about how you and your birth partner can work together
