Mamas on Bedrest: Should You Take a Childbirth Education Class?

May 29th, 2013

In this video blog, Bedrest Coach Darline Turner answers the question, “Should I take a childbirth education class?”

Not having taken childbirth education classes with her own children, Darline sees this as one area where she missed the boat. Having a traumatic delivery with her daughter, the hustle and bustle in the delivery suite, her daughter being whisked away to the NICU and the general chaos that left dad befuddled, Darline is sure that childbirth education classes would have helped immensely. Below she shares here some of the more popular education organizations and some of the childbirth educators that she likes, knows, trusts and recommends.
