Outline (rough) for my early childbirth education class. Thoughts, suggestion, and comments welcome.
I hope to start teaching an early (TTC-20 weeks) childbirth education class soon. I think I found a spot to hold the classes (along with free cloth diapering and baby wearing classes). This part, getting the curriculum straight is the hardest part. What do you think of my outline?
Class 1: Healthy Mommy Healthy Baby
Class 2: My Provider, My Birth
I. Dream Birth
II. Provide to Support my Birth Choices
Class 3: Anatomy and Physiology of Birth
Class 4: Birth Interventions- Helpful or Harmful
Class 5: Reassessing My Provider, My Birth
Class 6: Postpartum and Newborn Care
II. Cord Care
IV.Rest, Rest, Rest
Note: The main goal is to provided families with information and key them into a provider that will respect their birth.
