YES, physical preparation is just one piece of the birth prep puzzle.
I love prenatal yoga for the quiet, introspective time to bond with Baby, strength, balance and flexibility. And a more fast paced or weight-based fitness class will help build your stamina for the physical aspects of laboring.
Q. What are these classes missing? (Because they serve a different but equally important role)
A. COMPREHENSIVE INFORMATION ABOUT:
-Physiologically normal birth
-Variations of normal in pregnancy, labor and postpartum as well as indicators of the need for more medical management
-Managing unexpected circumstances and understanding proposed interventions, their pros/cons
-Informed consent and its role in making the best decisions for your family and baby -Breastfeeding and newborn care tips and techniques
-Labor comfort measures (including hands-on practice) -What to expect postpartum
-Infant/pediatric CPR certification
-Car seat safety education and installation
You guys...you will ALWAYS remember your Birthing Day...make it worth remembering fondly by investing in the experience and your own education.
PSSST, guess what? I have been working with some of my favorite local fitness pros to bring their smiling faces right into my classroom….so you can get to know them and feel empowered to choose a prenatal fitness program that works for you and your lifestyle so you can work on that heart-pumping stamina and heart-centering calm. (Not only are these wonderful ladies fitness experts you can count on to keep you safe and active but they're also the very best kind of people and I promise, you DEF want one (OR ALL) of them in your life.
