The lesson will include several different birth stories including VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean), waterbirth, when to go to the hospital, un-medicated birth (natural birth), epidural birth, single mom birth, cesarean birth, how sexual abuse can affect labor and ways to address it, and also tips on how to introduce religion or/and spirituality into the birthing room.
We will also be showing you birth videos from around the world so you can how women in other cultures birth.
Our birth journaling will begin, with guidance for how to get started. Debra will also give you great tips and tricks for your birth bag, and what you may want to consider having on hand during labor and delivery.
