For first time moms or vaginal birth after Cesarean clients, I recommend a childbirth class. The ones below have been attended and reviewed by moms I trust. Please read carefully to find the right class for you!
"Dynamic, Fun, and Experiential, Katie created her Inspired Birth originally as a childbirth class for her doula clients. She was tired of seeing women have to choose a childbirth class with a singular method. Some methods had great exercises, some had tons of grounded information, and others focused on a specific technique that may not work for all mamas. Inspired Birth has something for everyone, and affirms birth as a natural, normal, and sacred event."
"HypnoBirthing is a unique method of relaxed, natural childbirth education, enhanced by self-hypnosis techniques. HypnoBirthing provides the missing link that allows women to use their natural instincts to bring about a safer, easier, more comfortable birthing. Emphasis is placed on pregnancy and childbirth, as well as on pre-birth parenting and the consciousness of the pre-born baby. As a birthing method, HypnoBirthing is as new as tomorrow and as old as ancient times."
These prenatal classes are designed for the discerning and conscientious-types who want more than power-point presentations and a standard class syllabus in their birth preparation class. Those who know that self-inquiry, connection with their partner, building community with others, and taking risks are a part of preparing for birth and beyond (in addition, of course, to things like pain-coping strategies, nuts and bolts about how labor unfolds, and other practical resources). Those that can feel a big shift coming on – knowing that the transition to becoming a mother or a father is HUGE, and is a rite-of-passage.
