Pregnancy Classes supporting normal birth
CMWA's childbirth education program for pregnant women and their partners is designed to inspire and inform expectant couples for the birth and to assist new parents during the first few weeks and months of their baby's life.
Our classes are for all women and their partners, not just those who are planning to birth on our Community Midwifery Program. Our core workshops are conducted by midwives or trained Childbirth Educators experienced in all types of birth.
At CMWA we view childbirth as a natural and normal life event. A positive, empowered, informed birth experience leaves new parents with a sense of pride, satisfaction and heightened self esteem. However we respect that many expectant couples approach the experience with at least some trepidation. Our aim to is provide information and support in a way that will inspire women and their partners to actively plan for a great, safe birth for themselves and their baby - no matter where they choose to birth or who they choose as their care-givers.
All bookings are for a couple, 2 people, not seats booked as indicated. If you can't see a date that suits, call us on 9430 6882.
