Having a baby is such an exciting time, but the childbirth process can be scary and bring up so many questions. A childbirth class can help to reduce the fear of the unknown and overcome the overwhelm of information coming in. It can also be helpful to your birthing partner so that expectations of your needs are set.
Childbirth classes can teach you breathing techniques to help when you go into labor. They can help you create a birth plan, which is great to have (although babies often come according to their own plans).
Childbirth classes are also a great place to meet other expecting parents. It’s always great to have another person who knows exactly what you are going through and can walk the road with you.

During both of my pregnancies, I lived in a place that did not have any of these resources, and I would have loved to have the option. There was so much anxiety surrounding childbirth, and I felt so alone. It would have been great to have a class to turn to with all of my questions.
ABQ Mom Team Recommendations
“Most hospitals and birth centers offer an array of childbirth classes which I’m sure are helpful and fun. One class that I think is amazing and has great outcomes, especially for mamas who want to go natural, is the Curtis method or HypnoActive birth. This is an amazing and thorough class that gives new parents the tools to help them with coping during an unmedicated labor.” -Anastasia F.
