Thank you Jeremy Toemans on birth class recommendation

One of my geek friends, Jeremy Toemans, kept raving about the birth class he and his wife took in San Francisco.

Now that I’ve been through a pretty rough birth both Maryam and I agree that the McMoyler Method kept us calm and pretty happy all the way through.

I recommend this series of classes to anyone.

Sarah McMoyler rocks. She’s my hero today and played a key role in getting Milan here.

If you are planning on having a kid I can’t recommend getting into a class like this enough.

Also, we both took her infant CPR class. I hope never to use that knowledge, but it’s sure nice to know that I could do that if needed.

Funny story, Thomas Hawk thought it was cute when I went “ssssshhhhh” to Milan to quiet him down. That’s straight out of the class. In fact, she was giving a bath to a baby boy during the class who was crying. She did that and he stopped crying immediately. She explained why that worked in the class (it sounds a lot like the white noise they hear in the womb, for one). It’s nice to have little tricks to make you look great and give you confidence in situations you might not have dealt with well before.

I can’t say enough about her and her staff.

  1. Sounds like one of the shushing techniques described in Happiest Baby On The Block, by Harvey Karp. If you haven’t checked it out (or if they didn’t cover it all in your class), I recommend it – especially the video.

  3. My pleasure Robert, glad to have helped! I agree very much that Sarah’s class absolutely helped prepare my wife and I for the birth of our son. Glad to hear Milan is here safe and sound!

  5. I took one of those two. My wife didn’t find it that interesting (‘I just need to know when to push’) but for me it helped with a lot of the logistics of the day you arrive in the hospital, from how to unplug the EKG and go to the bathroom to which forms you need when you check in (and the wife is screaming).

    Also highly recommended.
