Since the mid-1980s hospitals have held much of the control over childbirth classes.
This has resulted in an emphasis shifted from empowering parents to take control of their births, to giving information that supported the hospital and its practices.
As a result, many Perth hospital childbirth education classes are no longer run by passionate childbirth educators but staff midwives, with no formal childbirth education training and who are expected to toe the hospital line.
In contrast, Birth Savvy offers truly independent childbirth classes with no affiliations to hospitals or obstetricians.
Birth Savvy is run by a passionate midwife with formal childbirth and early parenting education training.
