- The hospital and home birth experience (What can you expect? What are your choices?)\
- Managing labour with hands on comfort measures
-The who, what, where and why of drug management in a hospital setting
-Pushing to support your pelvic floor health ( And why this may be important to you later in life)
-The golden first hour

-Honoring the journey and transition into parenthood with self love and gratitude.
