I think the biggest thing is that the classes gave me the confidence during pregnancy, labour, and delivery to know what was going on. Without the detailed knowledge I wouldnt have known a placenta from a perineum. In all seriousness, I liked the focus on knowing your options rather than just telling us what was the best think in all instances. So much of pregnancy and birth is dependent on so many factors. Having the information and trust in ourselves gave us the ability to make informed decisions across many areas. For instance, in deciding what food choice we were making during pregnancy we could balance the nutritional requirements against what would realistically work.
