Where to birth your baby
For a healthy, uncomplicated pregnancy you can plan to birth your baby at home with a midwife. Women who choose this option are more likely to have a normal birth and less likely to require medical interventions.
These units provide a home away from home environment and are a good option for women with uncomplicated pregnancies. Like home birth, women who choose a birthing unit, are more likely to have a normal birth and are less likely to require medical interventions.
These facilities are for women who require specialised care. In some centres these are the only facilities currently available to women.
