A note from our Childbirth Educator...
Birth is beautiful in all its forms. Unmedicated, medicated (IV narcotics/epidural), cesarean, home birth, birth center, water birth, and every other variation there may be. Your birth story has yet to be written. You have some decisions to make. What birth is right for your family? What interventions do you wish to avoid or embrace? You also have some learning to do. What happens during birth? What is my body doing? What can I do to help my baby be born? Who do I want to help me? These things are important to think about and decide long before that first contraction. Throughout this class I’ll be guiding you to several topics and decisions you and your partner will make. Your choice is up to you. I’m simply going to point you on the path of learning. Please bring all your questions, concerns, fears, hopes and dreams to class. I welcome participation and discussion. This is your baby, your birth, and your journey.
