Knowing what to expect when you're expecting is a great way to help you feel prepared and empowered for labour and birth - and to ease any anxieties you might be feeling. 

This section covers:

  • what labour looks like - and how to know if it's started
  • your guide to being a great birth partner 
  • some of the medical interventions (e.g. episiotomy) that might be needed to get baby out safely 
  • common questions and answers (like, 'what do I wear when I'm giving birth?!') - and much more.
