Well, I went to my first childbirth class on Monday. It was fantastic! The instructor, Stephanie, just had a baby a month ago, so it's really fresh for her. There are two couples in this class, and they are both pretty cool. They are definitely not Awkward Pregnancy Pictures material. None of this:
The class is for the Bradley method, which you can read all about on the Bradley website. I will be going to class for 12 weeks, which definitely fulfills DONA's requirement. Hooray!
Lesson One was about nutrition, exercise, and relaxation. I think that all the classes are going to include these elements, so bear with! There are also going to be vocabulary lessons each week, so we'll see what gets shared here as time goes on.
In other news, I finished Ina May's Guide to Childbirth! It is an incredible book. If you're at all interested in birth, get a book by Ina May. A review is forthcoming, I promise. I have just a couple books to get through first...
