See what others are saying about the Birth with Confidence class:

To become better prepared for our second birth I looked at a few smaller hospitals closer to home. As well as a more in depth birthing class with an emphasis on natural birth. This is where I found the Birth With Confidence Class at Flaget Memorial Hospital. The class taught me to do just that; to have confidence in myself and my body to give birth to a healthy baby. We learned ways to embrace the labor and take it one contraction at a time and utilize tools to work with the contractions instead of fighting through them. Most importantly we learned how to ask our doctor questions. That may sound simple but we all take for granted that what a practitioners does is how a baby is supposed to be born. Don't be afraid to ask about alternatives and what they are open to. We also wanted to have additional support with the labor process so we decided to include a doula as a part of our birth team. She was a wonderful resource even before I went into labor. - Denise (Loretto, KY)

Due to my amazing experiences with the Birthing with Confidence classes I was more educated regarding the birthing process which made me more confident with labor and delivery. Thank you for your help and guidance. - Nikki (Coxs Creek, KY)
We were so blessed to have taken the Birth with Confidence Class  because it gave us both the confidence to birth our little girl and deal with the uncertainties that go along with any birth!
