As a mother of two, I have experienced childbirth in two countries. Attending a great childbirth class in Maryland, US was the best decision I made in preparing for labour. The class that me and my husband took at St Joseph's Hospital in Towson, Maryland focused on breathing and relaxation techniques. I still use those techniques to this day and those same techniques allowed me to naturally deliver two beautiful baby's without the use of drugs or gas. They also come in handy when my kidney stones are bothering me.
I have worked with lots of pregnant ladies throughout my work in the US and the UK, and it always amazes me when I'm told that someone chose not to take a birthing class or couldn't take one for financial reasons because I think they are so important. Being prepared can make the experience of birth a truely amazing one and give you the knowledge and confidence to have the birth that you plan for. Having taken the local free classes in the UK, I know that you cannot always count on receiving the best information for free and having options is always nice.
I have just met Gemma, a local lady who has just started providing birthing and beyond classes in the Sevenoaks and Tonbridge area of Kent at a very affordable rate. I have asked Gemma to write a little bit about her classes for this blog so that you have another option for birthing classes and infant classes. Lazy Daisy classes are also available in a town near you.
