Pregnancy and parenting workshops

Mater Mothers’ Private Redland offers a range of pregnancy and parenting workshops facilitated by midwives skilled in childbirth education and women’s health.

Our pregnancy and parenting workshops are ideal for women and their support partners expecting their first baby. We also recommend these comprehensive programs if there has been a significant gap between this pregnancy and your previous child.

The programs run either as an evening series over four weeks or as a weekend intensive course.

These workshops are designed to help prepare you for labour and parenthood.

  • coping strategies and relaxation skills
  • safe exercises in pregnancy
  • strategies for reducing pregnancy discomfort
  • the different stages of labour
  • comfort techniques
  • when to come to hospital
  • options for pain relief in labour
  • active labour techniques
  • induction of labour
  • the role of the support person
  • caesarean section
  • unexpected outcomes
