When you walk onto the Labor and Delivery floor, one of the first things the nurse will asks you is, “Have you taken a Childbirth class?” When they find out you haven’t taken a class your points towards a successful natural birth lessens. They know now they can lead you anyway they want because they assume you aren’t familiar with your birth options.
I know that we all live busy lives. There are so many things calling to us, demanding our attention and every one of those things is a “Good Thing”. What about you and your expectant baby? I have taught Childbirth classes for a long time and have watched as families have less and less extra time for themselves. That is why I have chosen to teach a day long childbirth class. Instead of being away from your home and family for 6 nights, 12 hours of class, and 6 to 12 hours of travel time, I have arranged my class to better accommodate your busy life.
My first time Childbirth classes start at 9 a.m. and go until 6p.m. I have included in this class everything you need to know to prepare you for the day of your baby’s birth. I will be sending out a copy of “Prepared Childbirth – The Family Way” that I hope you would become familiar with before you come to class. Prepared with knowledge and questions I will teach and train you to be your own advocate, keep yourself mentally and emotionally under control, while training your body to know how to respond to the different stages of labor. I will help your labor partner to understand the key elements to help you have the birth experience that will make positive memories that will last a lifetime.
