Prenatal Classes at the Old Hospital Atlantida

Childbirth December 1 Childbirth Decemberby Anna Carson David

We held a wonderful prepared childbirth class this past Friday, led by Silvia with help from visiting doulas Anna and Sheila. About twenty women attended, learning about the anatomy of pregnancy and birth, comfort measures during labor and breastfeeding. Women who had already given birth were very generous in sharing their experiences, and there was lots of laughter and enthusiasm, along with juice, snacks, backrubs and tons of important information. We are so grateful to have spent the morning with these women, and for their desire to learn more about their bodies, their births and their babies!
