Discuss and work with your birth team about everything you learn in the classes.
By class 9 and 10 you will be able to construct the progression of labor and birth on my classroom wall! O, and the hormones and reflexes you never knew you had, made just for birthing! What about the silly or serious things you might say and do to help others know what stage of labor you might be in? Acupressure, really, isn't that a bit...out there? Nope. Tips for avoiding unnecessary pain are so simple; you know them right now but don't realize it. Labor has a purpose and you will learn what the purpose is...every...step...of the way.
You will have homework!
Be ready to study hard, laugh a lot and learn about a variety of possibilities you may experience.
