Beyond Lamaze Classes
...Your guide to the best childbirth methods and birthing classes
Your best birth begins with the right childbirth class. From natural birthing methods to hospital Lamaze classes to online childbirth classes, find which option is right for you~
It's really worth some time and energy investigating your childbirth education choices. When considering how to prepare for birth, most people think automatically of hospital-based classes, and are often unaware of other options.
And while there's no doubt childbirth preparation is essential for achieving an inspired birth experience, there are actually many ways to inform and empower yourself. Factors such as what's available in your area, where you're planning to give birth and what your goals are will influence your decision. You must also consider the needs, preferences and personalities of you and your partner.
Couples hear mixed reviews on traditional hospital classes and wonder: Do we really need to take birthing classes?
Taking classes are a great option for most. But not all birthing classes are created equal! Good ones can sometimes take a little work to find. Click the headline above to learn how to find and compare your birthing class options.
Natural Childbirth Classes
I actually recommend a natural childbirth class to everyone, even if you don't think a natural birth is for you. This sets you up with the most tools and options and to be the most informed about medications and medical interventions. Feeling more informed and prepared will ideally result in fewer complications, less (or no!) drug exposure to the baby and a better birth experience overall.
Which birthing method will best prepare you for giving birth? Deciding between the different childbirth methods available can be a little confusing. Click the above link for the scoop on the different types of birth preparation, including Brio Birth, Hypnobirthing, Lamaze classes and Bradley Birth.
Online Childbirth Classes
Online education is available for just about everything these days, so why not online birthing classes? If availability or schedule prohibits you from joining an in-person class, this can actually be a great alternative. The Birthologie Empowered Childbirth Course is the online childbirth class I recommend.
You can't go wrong looking beyond Lamaze classes at all your childbirth education options. And be sure to approach your preparation as a gift to yourself and your baby. Know the time and effort you spend will pay off in dividends when the big day comes.
