It's your path, your way.

Why take prenatal classes?

Every day, we are surrounded with information and research that is constantly changing and often contradictory. Many people can get overwhelmed by the amount of advice and information around them. This may lead them to choose to remain indifferent and just accept and adapt to whatever comes their way. This isn't a bad place to be, but in the birth setting, this indifference can often lead to unexpected outcomes that could have been prevented. With a little preparation, both mentally and physically, and the knowledge of options available, you can feel more in control of your birth!
