Birth Centre Brisbane
Join With Friends Of The Birth Centre To Get Your Natural Childbirth
Are you trying to understand the concept of natural childbirth? Don’t know your GP from your OB? Confused about the difference between a doula and a midwife? Deciding how to birth is an important decision. In order to make an informed choice, why not consider all your options, including the Royal Brisbane Women’s Hospital Birth Centre. This is a free public health service available to eligible applicants. If you like the idea of a natural birth with a dedicated team of midwives you will get to know and trust, a private home-like birthing room complete with queen bed, bathroom and spa (with the option for water birth) then start planning your birth with the Birth Centre today. The RBWH Birth Centre is housed within the hospital and in close proximity to the normal delivery ward. In the event of an emergency, you have ready access to the best medical care available, yet at the same time are protected from premature or unwarranted medical intervention. The supportive team of midwives will always offer an array of natural pain relief remedies. To apply to the Birth Centre, simply ask your G.P. to indicate this on your referral or contact the hospital on (07) 3646 8111 and ask for the Birth Centre to find out more.
Your best birthing option in Brisbane is the one that listens
We are often told to trust our bodies in labour but what would it know- it’s been demanding chocolate and wine for too long! The truth is that natural childbirth is a delicate dance between timely information, a supportive birth team, a comfortable and safe birthing environment and a lot of instinct and surrender. We all want the same birth outcome- a safe delivery for mother and baby- which is why the birth centre midwifery team is at your side from the early weeks to the last push to help you achieve what you want and provide what you need. If your labour doesn’t progress or you want chemical pain relief you can be easily transferred to Birth Suite in the main hospital and your midwives will stay by your side. Often just having someone believe in you and hold your hand is enough. However when it’s not there are experienced medical staff on hand no matter what the situation.

We spend so much time preparing for the birth that when our divine, perfect, little scrunched up baby is in our arms we suddenly discover how ill-prepared we are! Sitting at home with a new infant can be overwhelming, not to mention isolating, which is why Friends of the Birth Centre runs a Facebook page and morning tea to help mums connect and support each other. Whether your Birth Centre birth was exhilarating or overwhelming we welcome your stories and experiences to our community. Perhaps you are planning a birth at the Birth Centre or had a Birth Centre birth in another town or state? Any supporters of natural childbirth and natural parenting are welcome. Join us on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month from 10am at 28 Macgregor Street in Wilston and find the village we all need to help raise our child.
Your baby is in your arms- now what? Contact Friends of the Birth Centre to celebrate!
