Parkville Online Saturday Program March 20th, 27th

Childbirth education via online livestreaming

About this Event

The Royal Women’s Hospital is now offering Childbirth and Early Parenting education for Women's clients, using video livestreaming.

This weekend program of two morning sessions is a condensed version of the weekday program. Links and additional reading suggestions will be given

As a participant, you will be able to access expert education and advice from one of the Women’s childbirth educators in the comfort of your own home. One ticket is for both you and your partner or support person to participate. Places are limited so we recommend you book your spot as soon as possible. Please book the ticket using the pregnant person's name.

Topics that will be covered include:

• Signs of labour, including when to come to hospital

• Progress of labour and birth

• Support in labour

• Practical coping methods during labour

• Medical options for pain management

• Medical assistance for birth

• Understanding breastfeeding

• Safe sleeping and settling

• Communicating with your baby

• Community supports for the family

As we cannot conduct Hospital Tours, we encourage you to watch the virtual tours on The Women’s website: refund will only be available if cancellation is made, at least one week prior to the first booked session. If you book a program but do not attend no refund will be given.

Please choose your dates carefully as classes book out quickly. It will not be possible to change your booking.

You will need a device that has the WebEx app downloaded onto it in order to attend.
