Personally, mine was a complete waste of time. I didn’t learn anything that I hadn’t already read in a book. 🙂

I learned a lot in my Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth classes. I think the classes were more helpful than the book because of the interaction and practice doing things.

I also took the childbirth class from the hospital, it was more about the way they do things than childbirth in general. I think it was still helpful to know what their standard practices are though. And we actually got to see/touch things in-person; like what the epidural line, vacuum, forcepts, etc. actually look like.

We didn’t take the classes but that is only because I went early. I personally think it would have been beneficial for my DH to go through the classes he had no clue what was going to happen…

I was really glad we joined ours. There were a total of five classes. Some of it seemed pointless, but other parts were really nice. Since it was through the hospital I am delivering at, we got a tour of all the rooms and the floor, what we can expect in terms of how they do things there, and other tips that will make it a more comfortable stay for Fiance and me. We also had CPR, breastfeeding, breathing techniques, and pain management.

I have signed up for the hospital tour, breast feeding, infant care and CPR classes.  All through the hospital.  My girlfriend just took them and she said some of it a waste of time but other parts were good to know and that it really helped her husband understand/know what’s going on.
