A woman who becomes pregnant for the first time should search for childbirth education information as soon as possible. Learning everything she can about the childbirth process will help equip her to make the best choices for her prenatal care and childbirth preparation. It may be an overwhelming time emotionally but education will help you prepare for the unknown.
Childbirth education may come from several sources.

The childbirth education process should be an informative and fun part of pregnancy. Learning about what is to come and making choices should all be part of the joy of pregnancy.
Whether your pregnancy is planned or whether it is of big surprise to you, the almost 9 months ahead should be a happy time. Learning about parenting, educating yourself on the choices you have and speaking to people about your upcoming bundle of joy are all part of the
childbirth education and parenting education process. While you may go through periods of feeling sick in your first trimester, your second trimester can be a healthly and vibrant time for you.
Plans for how you will go through childbirth may be on your mind. There are childbirth education web sites and magazines that will tell you all about the various birth processes you can choose from. You may have options of a midwife, a family doctor or an obstetrician. You might choose a home birth, a water birth or a traditional hospital birth. You might want to try to have natural childbirth. Perhaps you are going to plan to take Lamaze classes or hire a doula to help you prepare. There are several choices open to you and the more childbirth education you have, the better equipped you will be to make choices.
Beyond childbirth education, you want parenting education as well. Whether it is a parenting class or just speaking to other pregnant women on forums and reading ebooks about childbirth and pregnancy, learning and educating yourself is the right thing to do in preparation for your baby's arrival.
If you do not have constant access to a computer at home, most public libraries will lend you books and you will find an entire section devoted to parenting and childbirth education. Most libraries also have free Internet use as well. Also, talking to other women who have had babies will likely result in their sharing books, resources and information with you about their experience as well.
