Event description

Description

Birth Course at Westmead Hospital is a unique childbirth preparation that brings together only evidence based techniques and practices. The techniques that you learn for your birth in this course have been subjected to a randomised controlled trial (conducted by Kate Levett and published in the British Medical Journal in 2016). This trial demonstrated significantly improved outcomes for women and babies.

First time parents-to-be benefit enormously from these classes, as there is plenty of time to interact and discuss a range of topics from labour and birth, to breastfeeding and parenting.
