Childbirth classes are helpful for both first-time and experienced parents. In childbirth classes you will learn information from your instructors and the other students, which cannot be learned from a book. A quality childbirth class will emphasize minimal medical intervention, teach coping methods for labor and delivery and help guide new parents in the many decisions they will make before, during and after the birth process. Some classes touch on subjects like diet, breastfeeding, anatomy and massage techniques.
