Whilst every couples journey is different when it comes to birth, my wife and I could not have had a better experience for our first born thanks to Box Hill maternal team. In particular Robyn who was deeply committed to us to ensure our experience was beautiful as well as safe. From well before our due date Robyn began taking my wife and I through the learnings of birth at a pace that was perfect to ensure we were never shocked or frightened. As a first time dad I learned exactly where I could be helpful despite the obvious feelings of complete uselessness (that I'm sure many new dads feel).
In fact this entire experience led us to establishing a small organisation to help new families with a particular focus on engaging the dads in the new parenting process. Thanks Robyn, Box Hill and Eastern Health for your commitment to supporting couples transition into families and ensuring no one is left out of the journey.
