What is the best choice for me and my baby?
When it comes to Maternity Care, there is more to it then choosing 'Public or Private?'.
Deciding where, how and with whom you have your baby is an important choice and our goal is to help support you find the best 'fit' for you, your baby and your family.
Things to consider:
- What are your personal views, beliefs and preferences around pregnancy, birth and after?
- Does the care-provider have the same/similar views, beliefs and preferences as you?
- Where/with whom do you feel most safe, comfortable, supported?
