I’m gonna sound awful here, yes the classes can be brilliant but they are also biased, I also HATE the fact they concentrate on breast feeding, if for any reason you can’t do it DO NOT FEEL BAD not everyone can (neither me or baby could, he couldn’t latch and i couldn’t create enough) YOU ARE NOT A FAILURE so never feel like one. Also every baby is different and when they are born you might find that what you learnt in that class is useless. People can tell you what to expect with labour but again everyone is different. I expected it to last forever and to be given painkillers and a water birth, neither happened, in fact I had a very fast labour and birth, 6 hours labour 10 minute birth, most first time mums take 12 or more hours labour. Just take everything with an open mind and be ready for anything and everything. Enjoy your pregnancy and remember to relax

Congrats on your pregnancy! 

I plan on taking a local parenting class later on in my pregnancy as well for my husbands sake. I’ve worked years in preschools and daycares and also am a nanny so I have alot of experience, but my husband does not! He is over the moon about becoming a dad, but I think a class will give him an extra boost of confidence 🙂
