I wrote about our birthing class a while ago and had nothing but wonderful things to say about the whole experience. Now that I am on the other side of my own birthing experience… I have even more wonderful things to say about it!
The techniques we learned in the class definitely got good use through my labor and delivery and I think the breathing practices have been just as useful as a new mom.
The best part of the class then was meeting and spending time with other parents-to-be who were at the same point in their journey. And now that all of our babies have made it safely into the world, it’s still pretty great to have a group of people to continue on the journey with.
It proved pretty tricky to find a date that would work for our four families, and in the end we still had one Daddy missing, but we finally all got together for a little reunion. I loved seeing Margot amongst her peers, including Rutendo who is just a few days older than Margot. They seemed to remember all the times they had spent together when they were still inside, because they got on like besties for sure.
It was also pretty great sharing our incredible and sometimes heartbreaking stories of childbirth and the joys and sorrows of being new parents.
I can’t wait to get together with this incredible group of parents and babies again and again over the years as we watch our little babes grow.
