Accordingly, touch and massage help alleviate labor pains. I think this technique works with me because I love massage so much. I'm quite lucky because my husband knows how to massage and it's very soothing and relaxing.
My most favorite part was the breathing techniques and positions taught to us together with our support person during labor and pushing stages. We were taught to always breathe in through the nose, and breathe out through the mouth. The support person does the counting. I wished we had more breathing exercises.
There were a lot of things we learned from the class and I recommend all preggies and their support partners to take it. However, $70 fee is a little bit high. Wished hospitals offer this kind of classes with lower charge, if not free.
