Why Childbirth Education is Important

Pregnancy, especially your first time around, is a BIG change. You are not only trying to figure out all of the information you’re gathering to be a good parent, but you’re also trying to figure out in this brand new scenario what to do with your body, your exerciseyour nutrition, and more. This is why childbirth education is important: it gives you all of the information you need to know and integrates it all together so that you can have an empowering birth experience.

Birth Center Stone Oak offers ongoing childbirth education classes. In our classes, you can get your questions answered, like:
  • What can I expect with labor and birth?

  • How can my partner help?

  • How can I handle the pains of labor?

  • What can I do to have a successful breastfeeding experience?

Benefits of Childbirth Education:

Childbirth education classes help you build your confidence in your body’s ability to give birth.

We talk to moms a lot about our own childbirth education options, but there are many independent childbirth classes as well. Childbirth education gives you the tools to cope with the experience of labor and know what is going to happen during the labor process. Classes also help partners know what to expect and how to help.
