So we had our first class, it was pretty good, it's a smaller class and the teacher is a doula, so it's not going to be as highly medicalized as I had predicted. The best part was when the guys and girls got separated and were asked a bunch of questions, and my boyfriend's response to "are you afraid of post-partum depression" he was like, "well, you can eat your placenta and it balances out your hormones".... in a group of guys in conservative Calgary, Alberta. He told me about it later and it was hilarious how the other guys reacted.... I was just proud of him for not even thinking of being afraid to mention it. (We're considering placental incapsulation BTW). It's impressive to see him there asking a bunch of questions and being super into it, but then again he hasn't read many books yet, so I think it will be good for him

Anyways, I just thought I would share!

It's through our provincial health organization, so I've heard that it can be pretty black and white and to take it with a grain of salt, but I guess it depends entirely on the instructor. A girl I talked to who took the class before complained that on their first day they had to watch a graphic video of a birth and do breathing excersizes (there's 9 more classes to go), so she said it was awkward, but we didn't have to do anything like that, we just chatted and got to know each other. It's a 10 week course, and the second half is (hopefully) when everyone has their babies, so I can't wait for that.
