“The Moms-R-Us prepared childbirth classes were very helpful and informative. This program helps you understand the changes that your body goes through during pregnancy. This class really helps you prepare for child birth. I know that labor was one of the things I worried about the most. This class helps you know what is going on and what your body is doing. Not only does it teach about child birth it also talks about eating healthy while you’re pregnant, exercising while you’re pregnant, and things that your baby is doing while it’s in the womb. This class really prepares you for labor and makes you a lot less nervous. I really enjoyed it.” Rachel, age 17

“I learned several things in your class such as: knowing my part in the birthing process, what to expect during child birth. I learned how important it was for me to be there during Rachel's pregnancy and birth. It really helped me out to know what I needed to do for Rachel. I also learned how to keep Rachel calm and relaxed during birth. I really enjoyed this class and highly recommend it for any new teen parents.” Cody, age 17
