Having a baby is a fundamental part of human nature, and some people don’t see any reason to attend an antenatal class. After all, women have been having babies for thousands of years, and there weren’t antenatal classes available way back when… right?
However, today’s modern parents seek the most up-to-date evidence-based information to ensure the safe delivery of their baby. Research around the safe and healthy delivery of baby has progressed significantly in the past two decades, with this research proofing that expectant Mums who attend an Antenatal Class have:
- Increased likelihood of vaginal birth
- Lower rate of inductions
- Higher likelihood of breastfeeding
- Decreased need for pain medication in labour
- Increased confidence for labour and birth
Women and partners who’ve attended antenatal or childbirth classes report that they feel more prepared because they know what to expect due to increased communication between them and their caregiver.
Overall, making women more likely to have a positive birth experience.
