I loved the safe setting. It was a great place for [my husband] and I to share our thoughts, fears, and questions about childbirth. I loved the fact that it didn’t teach a particular method, but rather helped us learn about our own coping skills, and learn how to tap into that strength during labor.
During labor and [my son]’s birth I relied on many of the techniques that we had practiced in class. I was grateful that we had learned so much about the labor process in BFW, because during times that labor was particularly challenging, I knew what was happening to my body, and was calmed by that knowledge. Thanks to BFW, Jeremy and I were also able to establish a birth plan that we were both comfortable with. I know that the class also helped to empower Jeremy and find his roll in the birthing process.
