“Since the class, my birth plan looks very different than from what it was with our previous babies.”
I was pregnant with my 4th baby, when I took the birthing class, second to having one without an epidural, and first non-hospital birth. My husband and I found the class extremely informative, even for us who had been through birth before. We found that there was a big difference between just going through labor, and actually understanding what all is going on with your body, as well as your baby’s. We learned a lot, and since the class, my birth plan looks very different than from what it was with our previous babies.
Also, about Mrs. Shelly, I just want to say that she is a very loving, motherly type, that truly cares, and takes time to answer all your questions. She never made us feel like any questions we had were silly, and she encourages you to do what feels right for you. She is also an experienced mother herself, having gone through giving birth 14 times! That in itself should make any person want to hear her wisdom.
I enjoyed the classes we took very much, enjoyed getting to meet others in the same phase of life, and walked away feeling much more prepared for bringing our baby into the world!
