You are about to meet the little baby that has been growing in your womb for the past nine months. Remember, both of you are facing labour together and the more relaxed and calm you are throughout, the better you and your baby will cope.

If you have any questions, fears or worries about labour, please contact your doctor midwife or our Careline and we can help to put your mind at rest.
