Health Tip: Take a Childbirth Class

-- Pregnant women and their partners may be fully stocked with diapers and baby food, but there's much more to preparing for childbirth.

The Nemours Foundation says by taking a childbirth class, soon-to-be parents can learn:

  • How the baby develops during pregnancy.
  • Potential signs that there may be a problem.
  • Suggestions for staying more comfortable during pregnancy, labor and delivery.
  • Relaxation and breathing techniques to use during labor and delivery.
  • Creating a birth plan.
  • Signs that labor has begun.
  • What labor and birth involve, and how the partner can help.
