FAQS about Prep 4 Birth™️

What is Prep 4 Birth™️?

P4B is a 3 hour clinic (sometimes broken up into two 1.5 hour sessions). It is appropriate for any trimester of pregnancy. I recommend taking the class as early as possible because it gives you a longer period of time to implement the exercises, to build your body strength, but also begin to prepare your mind for the emotional and mental rigors of labor and birth.

Why Should You Take Prep 4 Birth™️?

There are many studies to support using birth balls and peanut balls during labor. With the peanut balls, especially for those who are choosing to have an epidural, knowing how to correctly use a peanut ball during labor will significantly shorten their labor and push time. This is particularly true for first time mothers. Additionally, knowing how to use a peanut ball to open the inlet of the pelvis or the outlet of the pelvis for comfort measures in general is a useful thing for women during labor.

Using the birth ball, during pregnancy has be shown to strength your body physically. Many of the exercise we teach in the first part of the BBB clinic are specifically geared towards strengthening your legs, the muscles around your pelvis, and in your core. Simply sitting on the ball helps to fire the deep core muscles such as the transverse abdominal muscle, the internal obliques, and the external obliques.
