Introduction to Week 3

Cecily introduces what you will learn in Week 3.

Welcome back to the course. We hope that you have learned some new things about labour and birth that will be useful for you.

This week, we will:

  • talk about how labour starts, and about how your body manages during labour.
  • show you some different things that might help you during labour, such as the use of birthing aids and hypnobirthing, relaxation, and acupressure.

Thank you for joining us and we hope you enjoy the week’s activities.
