Introduction to Week 2

In this video, Cecily introduces what you will be learning in Week 2 of the course.

Welcome back! We hope that you enjoyed the first week of ‘Journey to Birth’ and that you found the information useful.

In this week, we will give some more details about labour and birth, to help you plan for your own labour and birth. We will talk about:

  • Your options of where you can give birth
  • Different types of birth
  • What happens when labour begins

You will also use the ‘Start your Journey to Birth’ map to start planning your own labour and birth.

Thank you for joining us, we hope you enjoy the week.
