A recent article found that parents-to-be who sought out childbirth education classes and complementary therapies such as yoga, meditation, and acupuncture often had better birth outcomes.

Take some time today to see if a local childbirth or breastfeeding class (we offer both!), a gentle yoga class, or using guided meditation might be right for you.
