antenatal education and support

We have developed THINKNATALTM, a series of educational resources aimed at providing support and information on a variety of topics that are often excluded or underrepresented in existing antenatal education. This is in collaboration with parents and a range of clinicians involved in maternity care, such as midwives, obstetricians, pelvic health physiotherapists and mental health clinicians.

Welcome to THINKNATALTM

Our philosophy is to encourage a collaborative, multi-disciplinary and individualised approach to pregnancy, birth and postpartum care that recognises each person’s life experiences, values, wants, needs and physical health requirements and we encourage our health professionals to do the same.
