natural childbirth classes in St. Louis area - Page 2

post #21 of 22
I mentioned that I was taking the natural childbirth class at MoBap and would let you know how it went. I just have to say WOW. It was excellent. Obviously I don't know what other NCB classes are like though I have read a lot of natural childbirth material. I'm amazied at how different the two MoBap classes were like. I thought their standard class was surprisingly crunchy. The natural class used some of the same videos and powerpoint slides but what we mostly did was talk. My class asked lots of questions.

One of the best things was walking over to take the tour of L&D and the post-partum rooms. Now, I'd already been on two tours of MoBap but this time we were in an L&D room forever, working the lights, seeing how the bed worked, going through different labor positions in the very same kind of room I'll be in.

This particular instructor is moving away to do her midwifery practicum.

I felt like this class was evidence based enough to keep my science side happy and more than crunchy enough. There was a great deal of emphasis on the natural process of birth to help aliviate fears. Best of all she reinterated that we should ask questions and communicate our needs with the staff. I guess the proof will be in seeing how my baby's birth goes. I would not lump MoBap birth classes in with what seems like typical hospital classes which seem to be about what to do until the epidural starts.

I have a question for AfricanQueen99... Who delivered your baby at MO Bap?

I am looking for a good doctor that will be supportive of natural birth and even be able to give me pointers as needed. I prefer a woman and I would like to deliver at Missouri Baptist. I would also like an African American doctor, but that is not at all mandatory. Do you or any one else have any suggestions?
