Baby J, Pregnancy

Our date night for the next 6 weeks

We started our mindful child birthing class this week, and I’m already in a better place, mentally, about giving birth. The class is centered around stress-reduction and mindfulness. We all gather on pillows and mats on the floor at Luma Yoga & Family Center {a beautiful studio}, lead by Roxanne Cummings. It’s exactly what I pictured when I thought of a birthing class. But better. We even meditate. I’m taking in every ounce of information. The book we’re all reading together is called Every Day Blessings {which I’m adding to the other 8 books I’m reading simultaneously right now}. Homework involves practicing mindful thinking and reading. I could definitely benefit from some more mindfulness. All of a sudden I’m overly sensitive about everything and anything, so I need mindfulness now more than ever. I’ll try to snap some pictures while we’re in class. There are 13 other expecting parents — all with their own unique stories and birth plans. We’re heading into the last trimester now and I expect to grow a lot in the next couple of months. Ah!

Did you take a child birthing class when you were expecting your first?

    Sounds like a great class! Ha! I need it for a non-pregnant lady! We only took a basic child care class. My husband had never changed a diaper in his life :)!
