Childbirth Education Melbourne
Being prepared, informed and confident can have a huge impact on how your birth unfolds as well as your onward journey into parenthood. Childbirth education is an important tool to help you navigate what you want and how to achieve it.
Being uncertain about what sort of birth you want or being unsure about what to expect can lead you to feeling fearful about birth.
