The classes will cover fitness and nutrition for a healthy pregnancy and birth, relaxation techniques, the labor process, common tests and procedures for pregnancy, labor, and newborns, variations of birth, labor and birthing positions, birthing options, newborn care, and breastfeeding.
"Taking the BBC curriculum really helped us mentally prepare for what a natural birth can look like, but most importantly it taught us that it's okay if things don't go as we envision and to accept any possible changes along the way. It taught us to think about what an ideal birth would look like to me, but know if that doesn't happen that it's 100% okay."
Why Birth Boot Camp?
"Birth Boot Camp is an incredible tool, completely unlike any other birth class. As first-time parents, my husband and I had NO idea what to do or expect; Add to that all the various preconceptions that you have going in and you get this class- a full-spectrum view of birth. The classes helped our anxiety by being able to talk through all those aspects, in addition gaining a great resource in the instructor and your other classmates. It's a safe place where you know they have your back. We felt so much more prepared going into the birth of our baby girl and would highly recommend taking the time to invest in this class."
"Giving birth should be your greatest achievement, not your greatest fear."
