Childbirth education

Childbirth education encourages women and their partners/support persons to know their options and make informed choices during pregnancy, labour and birth.

 

The titles on this page will take you to the online edition of our Childbirth Education program.

If you are booked to have your baby at the Women’s in Parkville or Sandringham, we invite you to watch our online childbirth education videos.

Presented by midwives and childbirth educators, these videos aim to help inform and prepare expectant parents for labour, birth and early parenthood.

We’ve also included under each episode links to additional information and resources that you might find useful.

Please note that due to COVID-19, some of the descriptions of care may be adapted for the current environment. For regular updates regarding any changes to care in pregnancy and during your hospital stay, visit our COVID-19 Information Hub.
