The big event can seem daunting and scary – that’s perfectly natural and nothing to be worried about! Your friends, family, midwife – and this website! – are here to help with information, support and advice.

In this section, we’ll talk about birthing plans, the signs of labour, what actually happens during birth and more. The key is to arm yourself with the knowledge you need so that you can make decisions you’re happy with.

If you’re comfortable about giving birth, you’ll find it easier and less stressful. So don’t be afraid of asking any questions you may have, and asking again if you forget what the answer was! Giving birth is important – and it’s you that needs to be happiest!

We hope these pages can help you feel more comfortable and informed. And don’t forget – get in touch if you have anything at all to tell or ask us!
