I was wondering, does anybody know of any childbirth classes here in Cancun?
In Spanish or English?
I'd be interested to know as well. Either will be ok, preferably English though.
I'm 12 weeks preggers today!!
Jen! Congrats girl, wow!!!
(original poster, sorry to hijack, lol)
When I was pg, I couldn't find a class in English but I know there are Spanish facilities. Tracey is your girl for this one, Miss Doula herself knows better than I do and I had my baby here!
re childbirth classes.
In Spanish you have 2 options.
One is contact Irma Alicia Irmaalicia@yahoo.com
Or a tradition midwife called Rachel 998 8876989.
In English I can give you private classes in your home. I have prepared many many couples for childbirth and attended over 50 births as a doula.
Be mindful of the fact that Cancun has an over 80% c section rate so if you want a natural birth you have to choose your cargivers carefully and be prepared to be very very assertive.
Good Luck and congratulations.,
An 80% c-section rate is terrible!!!!
The natural childbirth classes I took were completely focused on how to do everything you can to avoid a c-section. A c-section is an emergency procedure, it's not supposed to be normal.
Ok I am from Oklahoma.. I have a 7year and twins that are 5yrs... Well lets just say ...... Pretend that you are blowing out birthday candles.... i was tryin really hard not to BURN any one LOL
Thank you thank you,
It's official, as of today I can no longer get into my work shorts!!
Tracy, thank you for the information. It does worry my that c sections are considered so normal here and it's something i'll be speaking to my doctor about on Wednesday.
