The Eve Health midwives, Laurie and Jean have extensive experience in caring for women during pregnancy and early motherhood and they share their experience in our inhouse antenatal education program. Our program is designed to explain the final stages of pregnancy, what to expect during your baby’s birth, and the first 6 weeks at home with your new baby. The session’s are most beneficial from 28 weeks’ gestation and are the perfect opportunity to prepare you and your partner for parenthood as well as questions of our midwives.

We have several programs to choose from depending on your birth preference or plan:

Small Group Birthing Class

This class runs fortnightly on Saturdays at Eve Health from 9-3.30pm and is best suited to those wanting general birthing preparation or information to decide upon their delivery preference.

Our midwives will cover all aspects of late stage pregnancy expectations including:

  • signs and symptoms that you might need to call the hospital for
  • stages of labour
  • pain relief options
  • normal birth and unexpected outcomes (instrumental births and emergency caesarean section), induction of labour
  • your newborn, breastfeeding, your postnatal hospital stay, and bringing you baby home.

Cost $300 includes morning tea, lunch, handouts and a hospital tour at the Mater Mothers’ Private Brisbane (to be booked and conducted at another time). Please note that some health funds will provide a rebate to you, please check this with your individual fund.

Small Group Caesarean Section Class

This class runs monthly on a Thursday at Eve Health from 3.00-5.00pm and is best suited to those planning for a Caesarean Section birth.

Our midwives will cover all aspects of late stage pregnancy expectations including:

  • signs and symptoms that you might need to call the hospital for

Individual Education Program

Some people would like to experience their antenatal education in a more personal setting, so Eve Health also offer individual sessions scheduled during business hours.

We have two 1.5 hour Private Birth sessions or a single 1.5 hour session for Caesarean preparation. The same topics (as listed above) will be covered in this program.

Cost $175 for the single private session and $300 for the two private sessions
