I started off wondering if I really needed such classes at all. I thought its a nice to have and not something I can't do without. Having gone through about 3 weeks of classes my ONLY regret is that I didn't start earlier.
I went to trial sessions at multiple lamaze places in powai. And finally decided on choosing happy birthing. Something about the energy here just felt right. And I'm really glad I came here.
I feel far more ready for labour. Both mentally (being better informed and more relaxed) as well as physically (more fitter and stretched).
I think the real achievement however is that I have gone from being really anxious and fearful of my labour and early parenting to now actually proactively looking forward to it. And I owe that mind shift in me single handedly to manasi.
I don't think this is merely a job for her. I think she was born to help other pregnant women and she's found her calling. She really enjoys helping pregnant women out and it shows!!
I see myself actively recommending her classes to all future mom to bes that I cross paths with. :)
