If you are entering the last months of your pregnancy, or starting to process what it may be like to give birth, you might be wondering if you need to enroll in a childbirth education class.
After all, it’s 2018. Anything you need to know you can find on the Internet, right?
Well, sort of.
You can find a lot of great information about childbirth on the Internet but the trouble is, you have to sift through a lot of bad – and even dangerous – information first. And who has time for that, what with a nursery to decorate, baby clothes to buy and ice cream to eat?
Taking a childbirth education class is a great way to prepare for birth and baby and taking it from a trained, caring and knowledgeable person is even better. At Metro Detroit Doula Services, we are proud to offer childbirth education classes that prepare parents-to-be with real talk. There’s no question we haven’t heard and we give you the facts in a supportive environment.
Here are four benefits of taking a childbirth education class. Read on:
When was the last time you did something totally new and different without a little preparation? Childbirth is one of those things that you can talk about with people who have been through it and leave feeling…maybe not so good. But taking a childbirth class from an open and honest instructor can have the opposite effect – and boost your confidence!
Often times in birth you feel out of control and as though things are happening to you. Learn your choices, and options regarding common interventions, and paths in birth. Understanding the routine – and not so routine – things that can happen during birth from a trained professional can make all the difference in achieving the birth you want.
Coping through labor is always the goal. Learning techniques that will manage the pain and fear of birth will ultimately leave you the best prepared you can be.
Taking a childbirth education class with your partner is a great way to spend some one-on-one time bonding and preparing for baby. You both can get your questions answered in a safe and caring environment and leave feeling prepared and on the same page.
