TheBumpWA (formerly Community Midwifery WA) offers a range of pregnancy classes with up-to-date, evidence based information, delivered in an engaging and positive way.  We have a significant lending library and provide midwifery advice to pregnant women and their partners, wherever they are having their baby.  We also offer support for the early days of parenting; low cost lactation consultation when you are getting breastfeeding established, and Mother Nurture groups for when you are struggling with the demands of early parenting.  Our pregnancy classes and early parenting services are free to all Community Midwifery Program clients, but are offered to anyone in the community, generally for a fee.
