Childbirth Education Classes

The Childbirth education classes have been running since January 2013. 

We have been midwives for over 10 years and are also employed by Orange Health service in the Women's & Infants Unit. This allows us to maintain our skills and remain up to date with hospital policies and procedures.

We also work alongside the private Obstetricians so are familiar with their practices.

Class information

Topics discussed:

  • Normal mechanisms of labour & birth
  • Peaceful & confident birthing as well as techniques on how to cope with normal labour & birth
  • Pain relief options & possible interventions & unexpected outcomes
