First Time Moms Nervous About Delivery? Here’s The Game Changer You’ve Been Waiting For!
A few months into your first pregnancy, and the cloud of haziness enveloping the month around your delivery making you feel anxious? Is the fear of the unknown eating you up? Are you worried about labor pains, hospital schedules, delivery procedures, and post-natal care? Don’t worry, it’s absolutely normal.
All through our life, we’ve been made to believe how giving birth to a child is the most painful experience one can undergo. Both expectant mothers and fathers are unsure about what the near future holds for them and this can get overwhelming!
However, what you’re about to find out is going to change the way you look at your pregnancy.
Even though the experience of childbirth is unique for every woman and it can never actually be accurately predicted, some education on it never hurt anybody. Pre-natal classes on your calendar are the new must-haves for all expectant parents wanting to ace their pregnancy game.
Throughout pregnancy, your body undergoes various changes, both physically and mentally. It is important to understand these changes in order to smoothly steer through the months. Pre-natal classes include the A-Z of childbirth. Right from educating you about the monthly changes your body will go through to the postpartum care for yourself and the baby. The sessions include topics on everything a parent needs to know — the initiation of labor pains and their stages, physical fitness training and yoga, pre-natal and post-natal massage techniques, dietary guidance, Hypnobirthing lessons for comfort, hospital routines, welcoming the baby, holding the baby, understanding lactation, orientation to breastfeeding, childcare training for fathers, massage routines for babies and also toddlers. These workshops are not just informative, but also fun and they prepare you for the wonderful world of parenthood.
Especially with the increase in the number of nuclear families, new to-be-parents sometimes miss having their parents or elders to guide them through. With these classes, you can bond with other expectant parents, feel comfortable, and bust myths the society has been bestowing us with! At such times, these classes act as a life savior and enable parents to confidently walk through what is believed to be one of the most sensitive and difficult periods of a woman’s life.
Some wellness and maternity care centers offer Free orientation/introductory classes. Due to the COVID-19 situation in India, most of these are programmed to be online classes which means you can be at the comfort of your home and schedule classes as per your convenience. So all you to-be-mommies, what are you waiting for? Enroll yourselves with the to-be-daddies so they already know the tips and tricks to handle your little one.
These classes are so holistic that they well-equip the parents to embrace and undertake this beautiful journey and never again be nervous about setting foot on it due to the uncertainty around it.
