Preparing for Birth

Having one single book to teach childbirth education can be helpful. Preparing for Birth is a full-colour, 80-page booklet that covers common childbirth education topics including the stages of labour, comfort measures, interventions, postpartum recovery, newborn care and the basics of breastfeeding. This booklet has been completely re-developed for Australian educators with Australian spelling and terminology. The information is current and evidence-based throughout. 

“The Preparing For Birth booklets are a beautiful supplement to our Childbirth Education course.  It provides a succinct yet comprehensive reference for families to refer back to over the remainder of their pregnancies.  The high-quality production of the booklet enables many read-throughs for families after classes have ended, and the holistic content allows the educators to encourage clients to read specific sections relevant to them.  When families have the Preparing For Birth booklets they come to class prepared to learn, and to ask questions that are relevant to their pregnancy journey.  It provides an up-to-date, evidence-based, easily accessible guide that parents can trust, instead of having to sift through misinformation that is prevalent on the internet.”
~ Gabrielle Ryan, Nurse Unit Manager- Maternity Services, Epworth Geelong

“The Preparing for Birth Australian edition is a comprehensive resource for our couples at Cabrini. The information flows easily through the journey from late pregnancy to labour, birth, breastfeeding and early parenthood, providing a great range of resources along the way. This booklet enhances our Childbirth Education programmes to allow our couples to confidently prepare for their baby’s birthday. This edition has also received extensive advice and contributions from two of our very own experienced midwives, which adds a personal Cabrini touch for our families.”
~Narelle Tsiros RM, RN, LCCE, Cabrini Hospital, Melbourne
