Birth Class


You know, taking the Refresher Birth Class might have been a waste of time.

It's all natural childbirth, with the breathing and all that. The video shows the smiling happy women going in to labor and delivery - for their first time. No video of second time parents. No video of people whose births didn't go exactly as planned, by the numbers.


When I mentioned we were going to have a planned c-section, I thought the instructor was going to try to talk me out of it, but she held her tongue and we all went on from there. As it turns out, this is the very instructor that we had the first time, when learning all about labor and delivery for Caitlin. It's very different now. Well, how we look at the whole thing, as opposed to what is taught. What is taught is the same old, same old.

So much of the instructions don't apply to me or to having twins, it's actually kind of funny. The new facility is nice. Eric may actually get to sleep in a bed this time!

Well, we'll see how it goes.
