Road to Labourland

Every family has different hopes for their birth.  Some want to experience a natural birth.  Others plan to get an epidural or other medication and want a knowledgeable support person with them at all times during the labour.
A successful birth is one in which the baby is healthy and the parents feel that they were supported to make the choices that were right for them throughout the process. These sessions will help you to navigate the roadmap to 'labourland' with confidence and feeling empowered.
