BBL 053: Why Birthing Classes Are Worth It

Why Birthing Classes Are Worth It

Moms-to-be often ask if there's any point to taking a birthing class.  After all, there are lots of good books and websites on natural birth.  Here's why a birthing class is still the best option – and how it can help you have a great birth.

Topics I Cover in This Podcast:

  • The benefits of taking a class in your area (like-minded friends can be priceless)
  • Why ignorance is NOT bliss
  • How birthing classes can make your partner… a partner!
  • Practicing doesn't make perfect (but it does make instinct)
  • Why learning birthing techniques doesn't mean you don't “trust birth”
  • Not all classes are created equal – here's how to pick the right one
  • How having a class with personal help means a better birth for you
  • What to do if there's no natural birthing class in your area (or room in your schedule)
