Child birth classes: Day 4
Written on September 1, 2005 by Kevin.
My wife and I finished our child birth classes last night. Many techniques for child birth and pain relief were taught and I learned how to breastfeed (hurray!). One of the most important things I took away from this class was how to swaddle a baby. Everything I hear says that swaddling a baby does wonders to calm it. In coming days, I will likely be putting up a 'how-to' on swaddling. Furthermore, we watched another video, this time about after the birth. The video showed as a baby would turn its head to find the mother or father by their voice. Definitely an impressive thing. I was really looking forward to my certificate of completion however when I received it, it only had my wife's name on it. I guess I didn't really attend the 4 classes and just imagined I was there. Just another thing dads are left out on I guess.
