INDEPENDENT BIRTH CLASSES
The birth centres and hospitals will offer you classes, these are important to get to know the system, but it can be very empowering to do the external classes. It is worth the investment. These classes offer techniques and natural methods for labour and birth, along with information about normal physiological birth. It also provides an opportunity to meet with other parents to be.

If your birth facility is 'baby friendly', it focuses on supporting breastfeeding. Some places do provide information and have a lactation consultant on staff. Just as with birth preparation though, breastfeeding does need some preparation. Whilst it is natural and normal, it is a learned skill. Another independent class highly recommended is an Australian Breastfeeding Association "Breastfeeding Education Class" These are held monthly in Canberra, on a Saturday afternoon. The cost includes a membership to ABA. The ABA classes will give you everything you need to get a head start.

The placenta is an amazing organ. Did you know that you can keep your placenta?
Some people like to bury the placenta under a special tree, sometimes with a ceremony. Some like to make art with it. Some like to consume it.
