Health Tip: Taking a Birthing Class

Suggestions to help you prepare
(HealthDay News) -- Taking a birthing class can offer expectant parents peace of mind and help them prepare for the birth of their baby.
The womenshealth.gov website offers these suggestions for parents-to-be:
Check out a local hospital or birthing center to see if they offer birthing classes. Sign up for a birthing class several months before your due date, as they tend to fill up quickly. Make sure the instructors are qualified. Consider bringing to the class the support person who will be with you during labor, whether it's your partner, sibling or friend. In class, you will learn about strategies to help you during labor, early signs of labor and how to control pain.
