Preparing for Birth

Preparing for birth can be exciting, but you may also feel a bit anxious especially if it is your first baby.

In the following web pages we have outlined some of the things you may need to know about preparing for the birth of your baby. The information includes the difference between pre-labour and true labour; what to expect if you need an emergency caesarean section; treatment for streptococcus B and raspberry leaf tea.

We hope you find the information useful, that it addresses many of the questions you may have at this stage of your pregnancy and helps you begin to prepare for the birth of your baby!
