Pregnancy Journey

Birth Centres

Birth centres, also known as Midwife Led Birthing Units, are staffed by midwives and midwifery support workers.

They have a calm 'home-from-home' environment, which can help you to feel more comfortable with your surroundings during labour. Birth pools are available and encouraged. Epidurals are not administered in a birthing centre.
