Where should I have my baby?

This is a question that you should ask yourself early in the pregnancy, and this will help you decide which model of care is best for you. The answer should be where do you feel comfortable having your baby? In a private hospital? In a public hospital? In a birth centre? At home? All of these are safe options for most individuals, and are ‘the right choice’ different people. Try to envisage the sort of atmosphere you would like to have your baby in, and who you might like to be around you; midwives? obstetricians? family and friends? MAMA midwives can work with you in any of the settings above. Please see the ‘information’ section of this website for more information on pregnancy care options, or feel free to call our centre to make an appointment to talk to a midwife.
