Last night we started our first childbirth class at TMC. Its going to be really fun. We learned all about the physiology of birthing and some introductory relaxation and breathing techniques for the first stage. Bryan is going to be an awesome coach. He’s already practicing telling me how great I’m doing and giving me massages. We also learned how to time contractions. Its from the beginning of one to the beginning of the next. I never knew that. I thought it was the time between. Next week we get the real techniques for the 2nd stage of labor and the hard parts of the 1st stage. So, positing, breathing, relaxing.
