Building your labour nest

In this video, you will learn how to build a "labour nest", a comfortable environment that helps relax you during birth.

In this video, Julie explains the benefits of being in a familiar space during your labour and birth, such as your home or a space that has familiar personal pieces to make it home-like.

Julie explores some methods of how you can create a home-like environment and the positive impacts of your birthing space on your satisfaction levels, pain relief, how you will birth and your own control over labour and birth.
