This video has parent and expert tips on planning birth and preparing for labour. For example, it’s important to think about who’ll look after your other children if you’re giving birth in a hospital, and who’ll support you during labour. In Australia fathers and partners are encouraged to attend antenatal classes and be involved in birth. This gives dads the chance to bond with their babies right from the start.
