In this section, you'll find information about your different options for where you can give birth - at home, in a midwife-led unit or birth centre or in hospital. We also look at the role of birth partners, coping with pain in labour, positions for labour and birth, and straightforward birth. Plus, read about what happens in the stages of labour when you are having a baby. 

As the UK's largest charity for parents, we can also help you meet lots of local parents through our events and courses.
