P2P Session 3

Welcome to Session 3 of Pathway to Parenting. Pathway to Parenting (P2P) is a programme for parents to be. It helps you think about the development of your baby and the first few weeks after birth. It helps you to think about how things may change when you become a parent and some of the practical skills you might need to care for your baby.

This session will cover;

  • Feeling prepared for labour.
  • Labour, surges and positions for labour.
  • When nature needs a helping hand.
  • Pain relief options for your labour.
