Preparation meetings

Preparation meetings are intended to reassure you and give you confidence in your ability to become a mother (and father: dads are welcome too). They also ensure you know what to do on the day of delivery and during the following weeks.

Birth preparation is an opportunity to plan for the birth and subsequent care of your child.
