Nope. If it’s a baby class better to wait until your expecting so the info is fresh in your mind and you learn the most up to date recommendations

I noticed when I was signing my son up for his big brother class, that my hostpital does have these.  It doesn’t look like it is something I would go to because I could get the same information from reading Taking Charge of Your Fertility, which I would rather do, and my husband was ok with just getting information from me.  If you didnt’ want to read the book, or DH didn’t want to, I can see where a class could possibly be benefical, and it did seem like people where signing up for it.

Um. TTC class? Like…how to have sex? haha

I would think a baby class once you’re pregnant would be more helpful lol.

ashes88 :  I cannot imagine what kind of class would be offered for TTC? I’d suggest buying Taking Charge of Your Fertility and having your DH read it. Most guys, my DH included, really just have no idea how the process works – from a biological standpoint. My DH really just thought you had sex and BOOM….pregnant. It look a lot of explaining for him to understand how ovulation works and timing it and everything.

Haha ummm no…is this a baby class or a ttc class?  Just read taking charge of your fertility.  I guess if he’s scared a baby class could be helpful but even those I don’t think are necessary.  You learn quickly.

I didn’t know a class like this existed. I personally don’t think I’d find it valuable. I read TCOYF and we met with my OB/GYN prior to TTC. Not sure what else there would be to learn, honestly.

 TTC101: Insert penis into vagina?

Ive never heard of classes *before* TTC…. only baby/birthing classes when expecting.

pinkshoes :  LOL. That was my first instinct, too.

OP, are you talking about like a NFP class? Learning to track your cycles or something (this was required as part of our Catholic marriage prep). Honestly, taking a class like this is not necessary at all. Read TCOYF or watch The Great Sperm Race. Sperm meeting egg isn’t really rocket science, but both of these will give you all of the information you need in regards to tracking your cycles or timing while TTC.

People have managed to concieve for hundreds of years without any instruction on how to do it.

Seems like a waste of time to me.

Give nature a go first

before you have your baby and before you get pregnant aren’t the same thing.. maybe DH should ask his friend which of those he did because um.. I think if you go in to a class and when people ask “oh when are you due?” and you say “who knows!” they’ll be like 0_o??

I’d bet a million bucks that the friend took a “how to care for a baby” class once a baby was on the way, as opposed to a “how to make a baby” class.
