Your body is changing rapidly and performing tasks and functions that you didn’t think were humanly possible. At this point you are probably wondering what in the world you got yourself into. Let me assure you, everything you are going through is NORMAL! For thousands of years woman all over the world have wondered: “How in God’s green earth is my body possible of such a task? How can something the size of a football possibly fit out of such a tiny hole? How am I possibly going to be able to do this, this task of birth, and THEN be solely responsible for this person, this tiny baby, for the rest of his/her life!” Good gravy that is A LOT of responsibility!

As awesome as pregnancy and birth are, we are human! A lot of uncertainties come with pregnancy and definitely with giving birth. It is normal to be afraid. This is something that you have never had to do before, and at times it may feel like you have absolutely no control over your body. You may sneeze and pee, laugh and pee, hiccup and pass gas, (don’t worry just blame it on the dog!) The world as you have known it, is forever changing.

Fear of the unknown is to be expected. I am sure you have heard every scary birth story known to man. Random strangers or even well meaning friends may come up to you, rub your growing belly without asking, and tell you the most awful thing that ever happened to them during birth; as if you need to hear that! Take those things with a grain of salt, and know that everyones experience is not going to be the same. Even if this is your second, third, or seventh pregnancy, remember that each pregnancy is different, and every birth is different.

Over the course of this online childbirth class, we will discuss: Anatomy and physiology, Stages of Labor, pain management options including: natural childbirth techniques and medicated options such as epidurals. I will explain cesarean birth, what to expect from a hospital birth or a more natural setting such as a birth center. In addition you will learn about many techniques for coping with back labor, the pushing phase, placentas, and what to do once your little one gets here. I will explain the postpartum period, basic baby care, breastfeeding and beyond.

Oh and partners…this video series is for you too. After all, you got her into this situation; you need to help get her out of it too. This is definitely not a spectator sport! Support is crucial, this is the most vulnerable time in her life and it is important you support her along the way. Don’t worry, I’ll explain everything. I’ll be discussing vaginas, cervix, placenta; parts of the female anatomy that you probably never knew existed and don’t have! By the time you are done reading this you are going to know more about your partner then you ever thought possible. If you have questions feel free to ask away. I relate it to me walking into Home Depot and not having a clue at what I am  looking at! So please don’t be afraid to ask, I guarentee you are not alone…welcome to the joy of expectant fatherhood!

Remember this is YOUR birth, YOUR baby, and you get to do this YOUR way! Providing yourself with evidence based knowledge so that you can make the choices that are best for you, is your own personal antidote to fear! I am going to provide you with this “Figurative” tool box if you will, and provide you with the tools necessary to give you the positive birth experience you so deeply desire.
