A Childbirth education program teaching women how to get in touch with their own birthing instincts becoming your own birthing master. Through this childbirth education option you will learn relaxation, breathing and self hypnosis techniques. Transitioning your perception of birth from fearful and painful to empowerment and transformation.
Become educated on the importance of preparation physically, mentally and emotionally. Thereby gainingexcitement towards your birth and confidence in how well your body can work for you. Lastly involving and educating your birth team completes this pregnancy and childbirth education option.
Education is one of our basic rights in the western and first world countries and something that is so highly prized worldwide. In Australia whether in school, at uni or at TAFE we are surrounded by education, in most jobs we have to continually update, learn, stay in tune with what is going on and current research, constantly continuing and increasing our knowledge.
Consider our basic knowledge base from school, maths, science, English, what would we do without these? Following that, consider what education you have done for your job, whether, uni, TAFE or induction day, without it, how would you have adjusted?
Now consider your pregnancy…
Consider your birth…
Consider your postnatal journey with your new baby…
Firstly did you get educated prior to falling pregnant?
Following that do you know about the biology involved? Surely most people know about symptoms? Almost everyone has an opinion on improving your pregnancy for yourself and your baby?
Have you educated yourself about birth? What is happening in your body when you birth a baby?
Besides what can assist or hinder your birthing?
How much research have you done about your care provider? Their attitude and beliefs around birth? Therefore your birthing place?
Without a basic education in school, you would not have been able to enter high school. Not having the education you did for your job, you would have had to wing it, or fail miserably at it or worse.
So why do we so often rely on the advice of friends for pregnancy education? A 1 day hospital education to tell us about birthing? Or rely on the words written in 1 maybe 2 books to tell us what having a baby is like?
How much research have you put into baby products?
Is it the same amount as for your care and how to have a beautiful experience? Education is an essential aspect of getting the best result so do you really want to face this most important life change without as much information as possible.
If you were told by a doctor you needed your leg amputated, would you get a second opinion? Would you research other options? Would you look into the doctor’s stats and history?
All before making a decision?
Have you approached your pregnancy/birth/postpartum in the same way?
