Pre and post-natal support
Our pre-and post-natal support is designed to help you and your partner prepare for your baby’s arrival, and manage things once you take your baby home. All our patients have access to prenatal childbirth classes. Our prenatal education program is conducted by our midwives at the hospital and is designed for you and your partner to prepare for labour, birth, breastfeeding and preparing for managing at home with your baby. You will be given details about this program and class dates when you make your hospital booking.
We have partnered with Birth Beat to offer you access to quality, childbirth education. Birth Beat delivers online childbirth classes that can be accessed at any time, from the comfort of your own home. The classes are delivered by a Registered Midwife with over 15 years of experience.
These are the classes you need to book so that you can prepare for your best experience possible. Birth Beat takes you and your partner/ support person from feeling fearful and nervous to feeling confident and excited for birth and meeting your baby at the Bays.
A women’s health physiotherapist may see you while in hospital.
