And what can I say, it was all I had hoped for.
I'm struggling how to wrap this amazing 10-12 week class into a concise little post. (because, I know, who really wants to read a long blogpost? "Not I" said the pregnant mom!)
Take a journey with your local Bradley Method Instructor(s) as they take you through the motions of labor: the emotional sign posts, the physical know-how, the tidbits you might not ever come across in your average hospital class. Natural childbirth is best described in this class as, "unmedicated, un-interveined and spontaneous". You'll also be taught that some of best ways to work with your body in labor is by, "breathing, relaxing and having a great coach" (being informed is big too!)
You will come to understand the stages of labor and what you (or your loved one) will most need at these points. You will practice. You will have accountability (always good when your on that special high protein diet for expecting mamas!) You will get your questions answer and you'll make friends!
These classes are personal, you get to know the other couples with you. You are on a journey together! I loved what one expecting mama said at the end of our final night, "Can we all meet up when the babies are here?"
I absolutely adore our instructors here in Cheyenne, even more, now that I have gone through their class. Don't miss out, contact a Bradley instructor!
I've finished the book too! Husband Coached Childbirth. (check out my review here)
