Childbirth Classes are very beneficial
Let’s find out how & why

5 Benefits of Childbirth Education Classes

Childbirth Education Classes  are a great way to help get mom and her labor partner prepared for the birthing experience. Do you fear childbirth? You are not alone. Here are some ways that taking a class can benefit you, your labor partner and baby:

  1. Calm your fears and prepare for birth – Fear of the unknown and how your labor will un-fold is one of the most common fears we see in pregnant women. In fact, it’s one of the first things we try to address to help ease any tension you and your labor partner might be feeling.
  2. Opportunity to ask questions – It’s no secret moms-to-be and the birth partner often have a variety of questions and concerns about childbirth. Childbirth classes are a great resource for you to ask questions freely and get accurate information.
  3. Knowledge of options and choices– We believe in
    “freedom of choice based on knowledge of alternatives” and want to set every mom up for a successful birth. The common goal of all of our birthing classes is to provide you with the confidence you need to give birth.
  4. Bond with your labor partner (s) – Childbirth classes not only prepares couples for birthing and parenting but also promotes well-being and increased intimacy in couples. This is a great way to spend time with your labor partner while learning about the birth experience.
  5. Pain management with breathing and relaxation techniques – Above all, childbirth classes will emphasize the role of the support person and comfort measures for birth. We want to make sure mom and her labor partner have all the tools they need to birth with or alternative comfort measures without medication.

It is recommended that women take childbirth classes around the seventh month of pregnancy.

Never Go Into Labor Without Your Childbirth / Breastfeeding Classes!

Prepare for a Healthy Pregnancy Today

  1. Don’t forget the folic acid: Folic acid, the synthetic form of folate, is a B vitamin that helps prevent birth defects of the brain and spine. Healthcare professionals agree that women should start taking 400mg of folic acid per day at least a month before trying to conceive to decrease your baby’s risk. 
  2. Start moving: If you don’t exercise, now’s the perfect time to begin — even something as simple as walking three to four times a week. Keep it up while you’re pregnant and you’ll enjoy a more comfortable pregnancy; you’ll benefit from healthy weight gain and less swelling and back pain.
  3. Breathe clean: Exposure to toxins such as pesticides and everyday household cleansers can harm the reproductive systems of both men and women and potentially lead to birth defects. Avoid cleansers containing ammonia, chlorine and strong fragrances. Opt for natural cleansers or try making your own.
  4. Eat enough for two, but not too much: Make sure you’re eating enough of the right things. Talk to your doctor to design an individualized eating plan with enough calories to sustain a pregnancy. Maintain a healthy weight now and during pregnancy. Don’t let the occasional sweet indulgence derail your healthy eating goals.

Thought for today:

“God wants to supply your needs from a place you never expected, through people you never knew, in ways you never thought, but first you have to believe that it is possible. Once you understand that His ability to meet your needs is bigger than your job or your business, you will find that your source of life is bigger than the resources that you have been accumulating.” ~ Myles Munroe
