Labour & Birth program now available online
Frances Perry House, one of Melbourne’s premier maternity hospitals has greatly enhanced its current antenatal and postnatal programs with the launch of an online labour and birth program.
In launching the program recently, CEO Michael Rozek said: "At Frances Perry House we believe in the importance of providing quality education sessions for childbirth preparation and we aim to assist new mothers and their families in preparing for birth.”
"Until recently all of our childbirth education classes have been facilitated as a face-to-face forum during the evenings or on the weekends. With the busy lives people now have in the lead up to their hospital admission it is difficult to attend each of these sessions.
"To that end, we have been working with the Ramsay Training Institute on an online Labour and Birth Program.
"This brand new program is the first of its kind in Victoria. The Online Program is detailed and interactive and can be completed at your own pace. Patients are provided with a User Id and will be able to gain access from 25 weeks of pregnancy up until 6 weeks post delivery.
"Access to the program is unlimited during this period of time. Both parents and birth partners will have the ability to log on to the program at any stage during the pregnancy to review the information,” Michael said.
The program will also encompass an online forum which will be moderated by one of Frances Perry House’s qualified midwives. You will have the opportunity to post questions which will be answered via the forum.
This program includes information regarding Caesarean Section birth and is relevant to those who know they will deliver via Caesarean Section and also for those who may require a Caesarean Section delivery unexpectedly. This Online program is also suitable for those requiring a refresher update on Labour & Birth.
