Health Tip: Considering a Birthing Class?
Here's how it can help

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- A birthing class can help settle any pre-birth jitters and prepare first-time couples for the pending arrival.

The American Academy of Family Physicians says a birthing class can:

  • Help parents learn about how a baby develops.
  • Explain warning signs of a potential problem.
  • Help parents develop a birth plan.
  • Describe pain management, breathing and relaxation techniques.
  • Suggest how partners or birth coaches can help.
  • Describe how to identify when labor begins, and what to expect throughout the labor and delivery process.
  • Instruct parents about caring for and bonding with a newborn.
