Josh and I attended a two day birthing class over the weekend. The following are just a few of our thoughts:
Kathleen: A girl in our class attended on Sat. and then went into labor that night. By the time our class was over the next day she had her baby boy. I was jealous.
Josh: Class was good but I didn't really need to see other people giving birth to babies.
Kathleen: Yes, the average time to labor is 16 hours, lets push for less than 10. Any chances I can pull that off?
Josh: Our instructor was very animated and the classroom chairs were really uncomfortable.
Kathleen: There are a lot of positions and ways to labor and the best thing is to do what feels best, not what looks best. Just don't labor on your back in bed.
Josh: It was very informative and it was very fun to see the little baby girl in the hospital nursery.
Kathleen: Wow, this labor is going to bring a lot of pain.
