The magazine…Baby Talk… and the topic–childbirth classes

February 4, 2012

April 1982, my friend had an article about the birth of her twins in baby talk: THE FIRST BABY MAGAZINE where she described her experience and mentions me, her “second childbirth coach, a close friend”… Her other coach was her husband. As her labor progressed, my friend tells the story about how the nurse put an I.V. in her arm ‘just in case’ and how her two coaches looked away, leading the nurse to remark, “If you can’t watch this, how do you expect to watch these babies get delivered?” But we did. And the babies were beautiful.

I persist in believing that such classes are beneficial. Here is someone who says just what I would say about how such classes help with the process http://www.parents.com/pregnancy/giving-birth/preparing-for-labor/childbirth-classes/ 

But here, too, is one of those videos… http://www.parents.com/videos/m/32086618/birthing-101.htm 

And another…

One more with Jimmy Kimmel’s spin…
