Why Take a Birth Class?
Research shows it takes on average 17 years before clinical practice changes to reflect what evidence shows is best for patients. Being able to identify evidence-based practices can help you determine what options are right for you and your baby.
Take a quality birth class independent of your birthplace - focusing less on teaching you the typical routine and instead providing you with options and the evidence behind those options.
You’ll learn how to ask the right questions and advocate for your preferences - helping you move outside of the routine and into evidence-based care.
You and your support person will learn when and how to use proven, stage-specific techniques for a more comfortable and efficient birth.
Birth is life-changing. Ina May Gaskin so expertly stated,
“Whenever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body, and your spirit for the rest of your life.”
My best advice for people during pregnancy is to do the prep work – it really can make all the difference!
