The past three weeks we had been taking child preparedness classes on Thursday nights. We learned a lot….probably more than any books we’ve read so far. The teacher Sherry Schroeder was extremely engaging and had gobs of information for first timers. We learned techniques to relax during labor, what we’ll experience after the birth physically, and what to expect with a newborn. We also asked quite a few questions about the different narcotics, epidurals, and other medicines. I’m going to try my hardest to go drug free and be as natural as possible. Anything can happen that we can’t foreshadow. We have about 12 more weeks to go!
