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.
