Childbirth education can increase your confidence about what to expect during pregnancy, labour, birth, breastfeeding and the early weeks following the birth of your baby.
It can also help you to make informed choices about the care you receive during pregnancy, labour, birth and the early pregnancy period.
Childbirth education is available for all pregnant women (and their partner or support person) who have booked to give birth at the Women’s in Parkville or Sandringham.
While our face-to-face childbirth education workshops are still on hold due to COVID-19, the options shown below are available.
