From due date to delivery, all about your baby’s big day (and yours)
The dictionary defines birth as the emergence of young from the mother’s body as it starts a life of a being that is physically separate from its mother. Sounds so simple, doesn’t it?
Giving birth has a lot more to it than simply having a baby. Granted when you reach this stage, you are certainly at the home base and preparing to knock the ball right out of the park, congratulations by the way - you made it through the stages of pregnancy and it’s all coming down to that last push, so to speak 😉.
Hopefully with the help of our pregnancy and fertility articles, which if you don’t already know, would have been a helping hand up until this point. So, if you thought we were about to leave you high and dry - you were wrong. We are here and ready to help prepare you for one of the biggest days of your life.
We will tell you all about preparing for birth, the different birthing options you have, the classes you should attend, the stages of labour and delivery, how to pack the best bag for your stay in hospital, how any unforeseen events may be managed, and of course, we will also talk about all that can go right and more.
Giving birth is an amazing experience and we want you to be able to take full advantage of the information we have to offer, as knowing what your options are and what to expect when giving birth go a long way in reducing fear and anxiety during this process.
