Show Notes

This is a big decision - where will you welcome your baby into this world?

In this episode, we go through the differences between public and private hospitals here in Australia and talk about what models of care are offered. They are both really great options for safe birth - but their services and costs differ.

This is such an important topic, you need to feel comfortable in your choices - because you need to feel comfortable where you have your baby.

I've included a link to the Australian Govt Pregnancy information page here https://www.pregnancybirthbaby.org.au/choosing-where-to-give-birth and it runs through the different birth choices available, including home birth.

A good place to get local recommendations if you don't have family or friends networks local to you- is through moderated Facebook pages or through local maternal health services, to learn more about them click here  https://www.pregnancybirthbaby.org.au/the-role-of-a-child-health-nurse

In this podcast, I use words like vagina. I don't think these are explicit, but if you've got young ears listening, here is a fair warning. As a side note, it's great to use the real words for kids!
