I felt that the demos were really really effective. My husband also thought they were very effective to see what it looks like to work as a supportive and in-sync birth team.
My son came a little earlier than expected so I didn’t get a chance to take the full course. However, I learned enough from the first class that I was able to stay calm and work through my contractions until I was able to get an epidural. I have no doubt that if I was able to take the complete course and have more time to prepare, I would have been capable of a natural birth. Next time, I’m signing up early!
Thank you for all the information!
They gave me the confidence in my own body, tipps on relaxing myself, my muscles, and I was able to manage labor pain unmedicated, and have a beautiful natural birth. 🙂
Thank you Katie again!
Wonderful class. Short, to the point, helpful, and awesome to do some practice within the class vs just a lecture.
