So just what is childbirth preparation and why would you want to follow a childbirth education course?
Many new parents would argue that nothing can prepare you for the real experience of labor or for the change in your life when you become a mother or father.
We would agree that they are partly correct, because everyone’s experience of pregnancy, labor and parenting is unique.
Often there are no definitive answers to the multitude of questions prospective parents want to ask. But, knowledge about the process of giving birth, tools to cope with the contractions and the extended role of the partner can make the birth of the baby to a very special, unique experience.
Living in Holland, away from your family and maybe your best friends, the prospect of labor and birth can be especially daunting. You are also away from the medical system that you are familiar with.
