Childbirth & Labour


Welcome to our labour section. By this point, you might have a fair idea of what to prepare for. (If not, take a look at our "Birth Plan" section). In the labour section we walk you through the three stages of your labour and what you can expect during it. We also try to answer some of the more common questions and concerns in our "What Else You Need to Know" section:


  • The three stages of labour

    The Three Stages of Labour

    A breakdown of exactly what you can expect during your three stages of labour and how to identify which stage you are in.

  • what else you need to know

    What Else You Need to Know

    The answers to common questions, concerns and general information about labour. Does childbirth hurt? When should I push during labour?

We hope that this section has helped you to understand what labour entails and how to prepare for it.

It is important to remember that labour is really just the end of the beginning when it comes to being a parent. Head over to our "After the Birth" section to find out exactly what you might experience immediately after labour, as well as some tips on how to enjoy your newborn child.

If you have any additional questions or have not found exactly what you were looking for in our labour section we would love to hear from you in our questions and answers section here. Alternatively you can get in touch with us and our fans via our Facebook page.
