MAMABirth Class


MAMABirth is MAMA’s signature childbirth education course, presented by MAMA midwives Hayley, & Rachel. We aim to empower parents to make informed decisions by providing resources & strategies to navigate the ups & downs of your childbearing journey with confidence.

MAMABirth classes are capped to small numbers and aim to make you feel excited, prepared & empowered about labour, birth & parenting. We present the best available evidence NOT hospital policies or practitioner preferences to help you make informed decisions & communicate these with your health care providers. All content is tailored to the individual needs of our participants & updated regularly according to the latest evidence. MAMABirth classes are suitable for women in ANY model of care or birth setting (e.g. private midwife, public or private hospital, shared care, obstetrician care, homebirth etc.)
