Officially Certified for Birth Preparation

Tuesday night we finished our last of our four “birth preparation” classes. Overall we found them to be pretty worthwhile. It was a great deal of information on the whole birthing process which helps helps to know a bit of what to expect, even though it doesn’t give you any hints about how it will go for you. David was great and really supportive through everything- though the whole video segments could have been less… “detailed” for him. We learned some breathing techniques but didn’t spend too much time on those but rather just relaxation strategies in general which Serena preferred anyhow. It was nice to have Mark and Samantha in class with us to chat and ask questions, and though we “graduated” with a quite official looking little certificate, it will be interesting to see what that paper can really do for us when it comes down to the real world experience :).
