@iheartnerds:  I learned sooooo much more from my doula. I’d already made up my mind to give birth without intervention, so the amount of time that the class spent on pain management was totally unnecessary. Learning what to expect during each phase of labor is definitely helpful, but what I learned from my doula, my friends, and reading birth stories was a lot more realistic and thorough than what was explained in the class.

I dont plan on taking them and didnt take them with my daughters.and we are all fine. I am sure there isnt anything you can ask about later or learn by googling it.

I would go away with DH if the opportunity was there.

We are doing the one weekend, 2 6 hour day, classes. DH wanted to do the 5 week thing, but I didn’t want to be tied down to a class for that long.

If you can’t switch to the one weekend class then ask what the topics will be each week, so you will know what you will be missing if you do go away.
