The Project “Terna Aventura” also uses this room for childbirth and parenting preparation classes. These classes have a practical component that follows the Lamaze philosophy and aims at helping pregnant women/couples to adapt to pregnancy-related changes and preparing for childbirth. The professionals encourage active participation during the delivery and childbirth by promoting self-confidence and self-control and helping pregnant women/couples experiencing this life event in a more relaxed way. It promotes the early interaction and the development of newborn care skills by helping the couple to make an effective transition into parenthood.
It also allows for the development of activities related to postpartum recovery and newborn care because the maintenance of a warm and safe environment by the parents is essential in the growth and development of their children. It is also important because the couple’s lives suffer major challenges with the baby’s arrival.
