Natural Childbirth Education

The neat thing about choosing this birth plan is the amount of preparation that goes into it. You don't just wake-up and say "today is the day, I'm gonna give birth el natural." You have to learn about the birth process...just so you can know what to expect.

Nate and I took a Natural Childbirth class taught by birth educator Chantal Wiliford. Chantal also has a blog called Butterfly Birth where she shares birth stories, resources and information. I would recommend taking her natural childbirth classes if you are looking to prepare yourself adequately. We covered helpful topics like:

  • labor and birth positions
  • breastfeeding
  • postpartum care
  • relaxation techniques
  • interventions and complications

"Classes are designed to educate and empower both women and their partners to create a positive birth experience for themselves." Butterfly Birth-Chantal Wiliford
