*Stephanie's review of St. Gianna Childbirth Course:
Yes, I think it was very helpful for us to be more educated about the labor and delivery process. My labor was actually induced, but I managed to do the whole thing without an epidural or any IV pain medication using some of the tips and techniques that we learned. We had also made a short birth plan, based on the information that we learned and what we wanted, that we discussed with our doctor before hand. That was very helpful in making sure that our wishes were respected during the process. Our doctor was awesome and actually got down on the floor so that I could deliver standing/squatting. I had a lot of back labor and knew that laying on my back would be very painful. So because we were armed with knowledge before hand, I was able to avoid laying on my back for delivery. And as a side note, he was so awesome and actually stopped to ask if he could say a prayer before I started pushing :-) Of course we said yes! We had made some affirmation cards and having my husband read those to me during the worst contractions made it so much easier for me to get through them. The poor guy could probably still recite my affirmations in his sleep after reading them to me for an hour straight! But it was all worth it. I am so glad that we took the time to arm ourselves with information and be educated about the whole labor and delivery process. I think it really made a difference in having a positive birth experience and a great outcome post-delivery.
