5 Reasons to Enroll in Birth Boot Camp

I am so excited to be a part of Birth Boot Camp. I recently just became certified and I am excited to bring this awesome program to the Mid Ohio Valley. I feel like there is a community of people like me who are into the natural thing but don't really feel like they belong in the crunchy local crowd.

5 Reasons to Enroll in Birth Boot Camp

So this is a perfect match up! The Birth Boot Camp class is going to allow me to teach about ways to achieve natural birth, but better yet, teach students to achieve the birth THAT THEY WANT! In essence, isn't that what every mom wants anyways? A birth that she can look back on and love what it taught her, how it changed her, what she remembers about it, and be happy to share her birth story with others.

If we change the way we give birth in this country, we can change the whole world! I truly believe our babies and children can be happier and healthier.

I've put together some top reasons that you eed nroll in a Birth Boot Camp class right now! Yes, send me an email when you're done reading this that you want to register!

  • You will make new friends.

Pregnancy is a changing time in one's life. Many times, expectant parents can feel lonely or isolated because some of their peers may not have children. A BBC class is the perfect environment to meet other expectant couples who you will more than likely share mutual interests with. Also, becoming close with the instructor is another possibility!

  • Ten guaranteed dates nights with your partner.

Let's face it, we are all busy! Childbirth education is the perfect opportunity to take time out of those busy lives to slow down and enjoy each other's company. BBC usually meets once a week for a few hours. Just that time to decompress and step away from life is a great way to reconnect with the one that you love.

  • Help to relieve stress and tension during pregnancy

Pregnancy is a time that can be overwhelming for many moms and dads to be. Part of the Birth Boot Camp curriculum is teaching relaxation techniques. These techniques can help you to relieve stress and worry during pregnancy but you can also apply them to other areas of your life. I think each one of us could use some tools that help to decrease our worries of everyday life. Also, just being in company of other expecting couples, can help ease the overwhelming feelings you may be experiencing. Talking to each other and hearing each other's stories can be therapeutic for everyone!

  • Gives you the chance to "fine-tune" your wish list for your birth.

This class gives you all the tools you need in order to achieve a birth that you want. It is so much more than the physical parts of labor. It focuses on the whole package. Mind, body, and baby! Birth Boot Camp presents you with all of your options, pros & cons, advantages and disadvantages of the choices you will be making, so that you can make a fully informed and empowered decision. When you are given all of this information and have the support of your BBC class, you can have a positive experience. Birth can be unpredictable but BBC gives you so much useful knowledge so that you are able to make decisions that are best for you, your baby, and your family.

  • Prepares you for the postpartum period.

Birth Boot Camp teaches about breastfeeding, newborn care, and what to expect after delivery. Over the course of the series, you will get to watch an informative video on breastfeeding (which I wish I would have seen before I even had kids, it's that GOOD!). Also, in order to be a certified BBC instructor, the instructor had to have breastfed a child for at least 12 months. Your instructor will be a wealth of information as well! Baby wearing is a topic that is covered in the series. Baby wearing can be such a lifesaver for those who choose to do it. It is beneficial to you and your baby.

So are you ready to sign up for a class? It is worth the investment! There are so many things to gain from taking this class. It is about so much more than childbirth education! Contact me for more information.
