INVITATION: ‘Preparing for Birth’ Pregnancy Event, Mon. 18th Oct

Mother Baby & Child is running two FREE pregnancy events this month in our series to help support and prepare women in their pregnancy, help you prepare for birth and navigate life with a newborn baby in the first few weeks. And this time, we’re taking you to hospital for a look around, after we interview the entire pregnancy team – it’s a rare opportunity to get some peace of mind and help prepare you for birth, regardless of the hospital you’re working with.

Taking place on Monday 18th October is a must-attend event for pregnant mums…and here’s why:

This will give you a great feel for how a hospital team should work together on all aspects of every individual woman’s pregnancy journey, regardless of where you have planned to give birth.

  • Time: 10.00 am to 12.00 midday
