Trust Your Body

Childbirth classes provide information about choices -- birth setting, hospital procedures, coping strategies -- and encourage you to discuss what might work best for you. Your classes should present birth as natural and healthy and teach a variety of comfort strategies for labor.

Giving birth is a not-to-be-missed experience. Savor the rest of your pregnancy, look forward to the birth of your baby, trust that your body will do what is was designed so well to do. Like countless generations of women before you, you will give birth with confidence and joy and deep satisfaction.
