are you prepared for your new baby

The Birthing Center of NY would like to thank all of mother’s and significant others that took our Birthing Classes.  What makes our classes special? How does the Birthing Center of NY prepare you for your special occasion?

  1. We use hands on demonstrations, we have the equipment to actually practice.
  2. You and your partner experience a simulated labor. You practice timing your contractions using your contractions app on your phone as well as on paper. 
  3. When the simulated labor prompts you that a contraction is coming you learn to use different relaxation exercises during the simulated contractions, when you have real contractions you will know what to do!
  4. We teach you what to expect with an epidural, what possible pain medications are available.
  5. We teach signs and symptoms of labor and the various stages of labor – this includes why there is the possibility of needing to artificially rupture the membranes, performing an episiotomy and possible laceration repair
  6. What a vacuum assisted delivery is and when this might happen, what to expect afterwards 
  7. Each lecture and class allows time for questions and is followed with a video to reinforce what was taught 
  8. Mother and significant others have a set up of anatomically correct dolls and tools for feeding and complete washing of the baby, washing hair , changing diaper, umbilical cord care, baby temperature, etc.
  9. We teach postpartum care. 
  10. We cover baby safety, tummy time, at the end of the class you learn infant CPR and Infant Choking ( Bonus-optional)
  11. With permission pics are taken through out the class and sent back to you after class for your memory and you get a certificate of completion.
  12. Taking care of someone else’s child is not the same as taking care of your own child. The need to know is so important! Take my class and learn and have fun doing it !!!

Pregnancy can be a joyful event and yet a bit scary

Posted on
Birthing center o fny pregnancy is happy and scary

In pregnancy you have two types of situations that can occur.  One is an emergency, this is considered a threat to the life or health of you and/or your unborn.  Then you have urgency. This is not an immediate threat but it needs to be addressed quickly. You have discussed your plan of delivery with your provider or midwife.

Choosing below, can you pick out what is an emergency and what is an urgency. Emergency you go to the closest facility and urgency you call your provider to find out the next steps – urgency can turn into emergency quickly in some cases. (always check with your provider).

You need to know the difference, you need to take my class!!

  • You have eaten and have been walking around and yet you have not felt the baby move in the last 2 hours or more.
  • A gush of water from your vagina- the color is very light green
  • A large amount of bright red blood from you vagina and your stomach is hard like a board and you are experiencing pain in the abdomen.
  • You have clear water and good amount of mucus mixed with blood and a unbearable urge to pass stool.
  • Baby is moving fine. You are 32 weeks pregnant, you have contractions that are strong every 4-5 minutes regularly.

It’s labor – ious!!!

Posted on
baby clio 4-5-21

It’s called labor for a reason. It’s a lot of work. Your birthing ball was helpful.  What can you do with the birthing ball now?  Do you know the answer?

  • You have finished with labor and it is now over. You should  deflate the ball and store it or give it away
  • You can use it in place of a chair.  Your perineal area is sore and tender. The ball will provide comfort. 
  • Deflate the ball a little to make it softer and more comfortable to sit on. Calm your newborn by rocking the baby in your arms (Baby should be in a sling)
  • You can do several different exercises postpartum such as bouncing on the ball to help with  your stability, balance and strengthen your leg muscles
  • Use the ball to strengthen your core as well as tone your legs and abdomen.

*Take my class and learn more!
