Childbirth Classes

Why Prepare for Childbirth?

Every woman carries within her the power to give birth to and raise her child.

Our classes try to help women get in touch with that power through providing unbiased information, developing awareness of the physical body, breathing exercises and a supportive environment.  


By joining these classes you can;
> make conscious decisions about the birth of your baby,
> increase your self-confidence and 
> develop skills that you can use during your first days with your baby.


Research conducted abroad shows that compared to women who do not attend childbirth classes those that do 
> have a higher chance of managing labour without medical pain relief 
(1)
> have lower cesarean section rates (2)
> have a lower chance of experiencing postpartum depression and (3)
> are more successful at breastfeeding. (2)
