When is the best time to take a childbirth education class?

Preparing for birth is important!

Taking a class to prepare for birth - often called childbirth or prenatal education - is a great idea for everyone as you get ready to labour, give birth, and care for your baby.  Learning what to expect from your body and your baby means you will feel positive and empowered when you feel those first exciting contractions!  If you want to know more about why we think childbirth education is so important, take a trip back in time and check out our blog post all about it!

When is the best time to take a class?

There are no rules about when you should register for a childbirth education class but for the most part, waiting until you are about 30 weeks pregnant works well.  As you jump (or roll) into your third trimester you will have baby on the brain so this is a perfect time for you and a birth partner to really dive in and learn all about your choices.  If you register too early, you are just not "in the zone" yet and if you wait too much longer than 30 weeks pregnant you may be uncomfortable hanging out in a classroom setting for too long!  

Register well in advance because they tend to fill up quickly!

Once you find a class you think is the perfect fir for you - don't wait too long to register!  Childbirth education classes tend to fill up pretty quickly and you don't want to miss out on a great chance to learn and connect!

Top 5 Coolest Things Your Pregnant Body is Doing... Right Now

Have your been enjoying this series on wellness during pregnancy?

We sure hope you are. Last week we touched on the emotional subject of celebrating a pregnancy after loss so this week, just in case you need a little BOOST in your day, we thought we would do something a little different. Pregnant bodies are pretty much the coolest thing ever.  Changing, growing, adapting... making life!  So awesome.  Everybody knows how cool it is that you are making a baby but did you know about some of the other amazing things your pregnant body is doing?

Put self-care back on the "to do" list

With all of those changes going on in your body, taking good care of yourself obviously needs to be bumped right up to the top of the list!  If you are not sure what to expect from pregnancy, labour, and birth then you should consider signing up for a Prenatal Education Class - knowledge is power!

In our next post we will be looking at how to care for yourself during a pregnancy after loss.  A heavy, but hopeful, subject that needs to be talked about openly and with heart. Whole wellness happens when mind and body come together; and this is especially important in this scenario.

If you have an idea for a blog series or a burning question we haven’t yet answered, send us an email - with the subject BLOG IDEA!. No doubt, someone else is experiencing the same thing and could totally benefit from it!  Make sure to check back in next week when we shine a light on one of our AMAZING community partners, Stephanie Reynolds, and the issue of pelvic floor fitness.

Until next time,

Jenn & Steph
