When you're pregnant

New parents are exposed to an enormous amount of information from different sources throughout pregnancy, birth and beyond.

With family and friends offering advice with the best of intentions based on their own experiences and the internet providing limitless content based on popular search topics, it is easy to see how parents can become overwhelmed and confused.

It is not uncommon for parents to search for answers on the internet or seek guidance from someone close to them, but unless the information is coming from an expert like a midwife, how can we be sure that it is accurate and safe for our babies?

After childbirth

To help ease transition from hospital to home, Epworth Maternity created a series of mobile midwife videos on pregnancy and the postnatal period to support new parents. The learning videos were produced with decades of clinical midwifery expertise as well as practical knowledge based advice.

The series is broken down into individual two minute videos which cover everyday newborn topics like feeding, nappy changing, bathing, dressing and swaddling, plus topics for mums like self-care, exercise, nutrition and partner support.
