Abstract: Although there are many types of prepared childbirth classes that teach the skills of birth utilizing many different techniques and philosophies, the goals of these classes are essentially the same--to have a happy, healthy, and safe childbirth experience. Although different methods may vary in philosophy or how they present the material, all childbirth education classes teach basic concepts of relaxation, breathing, and other coping skills that can help a woman work with labor contractions and gain a sense of mastery over the birth experience.
