Preparing for birth (even if this is your 5th pregnancy) can be stressful and overwhelming. You might be feeling anxious and even a little scared about your upcoming birth. You’re not alone. This is quite common. Some women like to go with the flow, while others feel comforted with a plan.
You might be Googling childbirth classes and feel overwhelmed by all the options, or have no clue where to start looking for a class. If this sounds like you, you’re in the right place!
Believe me, I know how you’re feeling right now. Been there! With my first baby, I didn’t have a clue where to begin, so I just took a couple of hospital childbirth education classes to get my feet wet. A big part of me just wanted a nurse or doctor to tell me what to do.
With my second child, I learned about HypnoBirthing® and thought, “Oh, that sounds kinda like what I’m learning in yoga, I’ll try that.” I ended up loving it, but looking back, I was completely unaware of my options and which course might have been best for me, at the time.
To help you get clear on your birthing method, I created a free course called Choosing the Right BIRTH EDUCATION Course for You, which is an overview of the five most popular birthing methods to have an empowered birth. Did I mention it’s free?
- The Bradley Method® of Husband-Coached Natural Childbirth
- Hospital-Based Childbirth Classes
- Hypnobabies® childbirth education
- Mongan Method HypnoBirthing®
- A Lamaze course
My intention is that you’ll be able to find a class that best fits your wants, needs, wishes, and desires for you and your baby’s birthing day.
There isn’t ONE right way or method, there are so many great options. It’s fantastic and can be overwhelming. I’m here to take away some of the stress and help you gain some clarity on which one is best for you. (Not your sister, not your mom, not your BFF.)
So, take your time or speed through this course and see which of the 5 methods bubbles up to the top for you. You can go through the entire course in one sitting (approximately 30 minutes) or take your time and come back to it as often as you’d like.
