Reasons to-why-childbirth-education-is-important
Childbirth classes are designed to prepare expectant
couples for birth and beyond. The classes will give
them a complete understanding of the process of birth.
Childbirth education is far more than learning to relax
and breathe through contractions. When they
understand the birthing process then they are better
able to work with their body and not against it.
Apart from providing factual answers to questions
related to pregnancy, birth, baby care and postnatal
care we would also teach various relaxation techniques
like yoga, visual imagination, aromatherapy,
acupressure, hypnotherapy, postnatal massage, baby
massage, etc
Why Take Childbirth Classes?
Expectant parents sometimes wonder why they
should bother taking childbirth classes and
parenting classes when there are so many excellent
books, websites, and videos out there with an
abundance of information about childbirth and early
parenting
Here are some benefits:
Getting the Big Picture:
In the Information Age, there are so many sources
of information, it’s possible to find out any little
detail they would want to know with a web search.
 But within the sea of information, it’s hard to know
what information they most need to know. A
childbirth education class helps to filter the
information, and helps them understand the
essentials.
Remembering the Information:
A common tenet in education is that students only
remember only 10% of what they read.
So, even after reading extensively about birth, they
may still have retained limited knowledge and may
not be able to remember this theoretical knowledge
during a labor contraction at 2:00 in the morning!
On the other hand, students remember 20% of what
they hear, 30% of what they see, 50% of what they
do, 90% of what they say and do.
Since most childbirth educators use a mixture of
lecture, visual images (posters, videos, etc.),
demonstrations, discussions, and practice sessions,
all these learning modes will greatly increase their
understanding and how much they remember of
what they have learned.
Hands-On Practice:
During childbirth classes, the instructor will
demonstrate comfort techniques such as back
massage and relaxation, and couples will get a
chance to practice them, to ask questions, and to
get feedback on how they are doing. During
newborn care classes, there may be dolls for
practicing diapering, bathing, holding an infant,
and positions for breastfeeding. This hands-on
learning is important for everyone.
Educational materials:
Instructors may be able to offer a wide variety of
visual aids, videos, comfort tools, and other
materials that would otherwise not be accessable.
Watching videos of labor and birth can be an
excellent tool for preparing for the experience of
labor.
Specific and relevant information:
Books and websites may offer outdated
information, or information about regional
practices which may or may not apply where one
would give birth. A local class can cover the most
current policies and practices specific to their
locale.
Social interaction / Peer Support:
Childbirth and parenting classes are a great place
to meet other expectant parents, and share
experiences.
Expectant couples could socialize and form a
group to get peer support during various stages of
parenting.
Learning from your instructor’s experience:
In a class, they will benefit from the instructor’s
wisdom gained through experience. Childbirth
educators come from a variety of backgrounds.
Many are labor and delivery nurses, labor support
assistants, trained childbirth educators and/or are
mothers themselves. From their experiences with
birth, they can offer examples of what labor may
feel like, share the lessons they have learned, and
offer you personalized answers for any questions
or concerns.
Reduced anxiety:
Most class participants find that attending a
childbirth preparation class helps to reduce their
fears and concerns as they learn more about what
to expect, and thus have less fear of the unknown.
