What we will talk about
During our classes we will discuss many topics including but not limited to:
- The birth process (what is baby actually doing?)
- What to expect at your place of birth
- What labour is and how it unfolds
- Labour coping techniques to use through each stage of labour
- What is normal and what isn’t
- How your support person can help you through labour
- What happens to you and baby after baby is born
- Postpartum Healing
- Basic baby care
And we’ll answer our most frequently asked questions:
- How do I know I am in labour?
- When should I leave for the hospital?
- What should we bring?
- What happens if I’m induced?
- Can I eat during labour?
- When is too late to take the epidural if I really want one?
- How can I avoid tearing?
- How can I avoid a cesarean?
- Will I be able to breastfeed my baby?
- Should I wait to bathe baby?
- When can we have sex again?!
This is probably the best piece of advice we can give you. Most moms will tell you that their births did not go exactly as planned. And it’s true. We believe that you can have the best plan in place and surround yourself with the best team but the day of your birth, the universe and your baby take over! However, knowing your options before and during labour allows you to be part of the decision-making process and in turn will help you have a positive and beautiful birth experience.
Women around the world birth with confidence and you can too!
