Labour & giving birth during coronavirus (COVID-19)
Welcoming your baby into the world is one of the most amazing experiences in life. It’s also one of the most nerve-racking – particularly in the midst of a global health pandemic. With so much uncertainty and hospital regulations changing by the day, the key to staying calm and feeling in control of the situation is keeping up-to-date with the latest COVID-19 guidance and preparing yourself for all eventualities.
From understanding if you'll be able to have your birth partner with you, to the latest guidance on home births, we’ve got lots of information to help you stay informed, to help ensure your experience of labour and birth is a positive one.
Spending time at home as you wait for the early signs of labour gives you plenty of time for any last minute preparations, like talking your partner through what you’ve packed in your hospital bag. Why not use it to practice some breathing techniques for labour, get a clear understanding of your pain relief options and learn all about breastfeeding for the first time.
