Preparing for Natural Labor Workshop
I was able to experience an unmedicated, natural childbirth with my first baby because I took several classes that "train moms-to-be" so they learn how to use their breath to ease anxiety and tension.
You can read how Hypnobirthing classes helped me experience one of the most amazing moments of my life. Click here.
I also really liked the Prenatal Yoga classes at Yogani Studios in South Tampa.
As I prepare to have my second child (due sometime this month!) I wanted to share this wonderful, upcoming class with Annette Scott. It can help ease your anxiety and teach basic breath work--good information no matter what type of labor and delivery you experience.
