    chillbee29 :  When i was pregnant i attended the birthing class the hospital offered.  It costs $100. Personaly i didnt get much out of it. I bought the big book of birth and honestly got a lot more out of that. It was very informative and didnt scare me! 


    Good luck with whatever you choose!

    chillbee29 :  I’m currently 30w and I’m not doing any classes.  Our hospital charges for theirs (like $150!) and the others are even more expensive.  We could afford it if we wanted to, but it seems like a waste of money to get information that is readily available for free.

    I am doing the free labour ward tour, otherwise I’m reading books and watching midwives and doulas on Youtube.

    There is a free birth class series online through my OBGYN that we will be watching.  It’s just a series of videos.  

    Unless the hospital has different requirements lurking to surprise us, we are sticking with that.

    It was a private class, not hospital based run by an ob nurse out of her home. It was very helpful, though I ended up getting epidurals in the end.
