What happens when the instructor says something you don’t like? Something you don’t vibe with? Well, that’s ok. In fact, there’s a good chance that it will happen. Your instructor is only human, and nothing she says is set in stone. Birthing classes are important because they expose you to the different mindsets and options out there. Take what you like and leave the rest— or put the rest away in an envelope at the back of your mind to pull from if you realize it will help you during labor. Gruesome stories, worst-case scenarios, and fear-inducing thoughts can be left at the door on your way out of class if they happen to arise.
