Three childbirth classes down, one more to go! These things are flying by, although they do seem to be getting more helpful. Tonight was all about the drugs that are available in labor. We broke off into groups again and each group focused on specific drugs. My group learned all about the epidural and then presented on it. Basically, all drugs have side effects, although they can be effective in pain management.
We also watched another childbirth video. In this one the woman was a lot peppier. I liked the first one better because you could tell the woman was in more pain. I don't want my husband getting the wrong idea about labor!
