Choosing the right caregiver for you
This is also an important part of your birthing journey. Choosing a caregiver that is right for you and your ideals about your birth preferences and choosing someone that supports your informed choices is an important part of your journey. Whether it’s public hospital, private hospital, homebirth or birth centre you need to do your research into caregivers that you feel will support your choices, ask friends and family for personal referrals and find the right support for you.
