Why do you need a childbirth class?
Women have been giving birth since the beginning of time. Why do we need a class to prepare us for something our body naturally does? Many dads have this question, especially when it involves spending $295! Unfortunately, many of our ideas about birth come from the media, which rarely presents birth in a positive — even enjoyable — manner. With each passing year, we become more comfortable with a rising cesarean rate. When a couple is trying to avoid interventions, medication, and a cesarean, it is crucial that they know their options and how to help themselves in the throes of labor. Birth Boot Camp gives you those tools and wants you to have fun along the way.
