Williamson County Medical Center Childbirth Class
First, I want to say that I am not pregnant (for any of you who might be jumping to conclusions). As a doula I make it my priority to know about all the local resources. I was curious about the birth class offered at Williamson Medical Center, so I decided to attend the 2 day class and experience it myself. I met Tammy, who was teaching that day. She was very welcoming and her fun personality made the class enjoyable and time passed quickly.
Every attending couple got a great workbook and folder of information to be discussed in class. She covered so many great topics in a fun interactive way. To teach us about contractions, she had us birth a ping pong ball out of a balloon. My delivery was speedy as my ping pong ball shot across the room. For another activity she wanted to show a dad what it was like being pregnant. She had him put on a backpack and then filled it with rice bags to simulate a pregnant mom and her increased blood volume. After that the dad seemed to appreciate how hard it was for his wife to be pregnant with a heavy baby.
Many times I laughed while learning from Tammy. If you are pregnant, I would recommend her class for a last minute childbirth class before you go into labor. She covered so many topics from nutrition, to labor, to giving a tour of the unit. It was so fun to spend the time with lots of pregnant couples and a teacher who is excited to teach about childbirth and babies.
