I recently had my baby and was required to attend a discharge class at the hospital. There were about 17 other women there. Most of them asked the nurses very common sense questions or questions they should have already learned the answer to. For example one girl asked what a circumcision was... and she had a baby boy who was circumsized!! Several asked if formula or breastfeeding was healthier for the baby. Don't get me wrong, I am glad they are asking these questions and open to learning. But how can one spend nine months pregnant and not think to learn this stuff before they had the baby?? It is not hard to read a pregnancy book, or search online, or read the material that is given at the OB check ups.

I thought the discharge class was hilarious.... since they talked about your discharge, ya know.... Anyways I didn't want to go since they wouldn't allow me to take my baby. I was stalling for a while waiting for my husband to hurry to the hospital so he could stay with baby. Mamachamp I thought the same thing. I wanted to leave so bad and everything they said was so basic and I already learned during my 1st pregnancy and relearned during the 2nd. I don't understand why anyone would go into motherhood unprepared and under-educated. I think the smartest thing some one can do is admit they don't know everything and learn. I hate using ignorace as an excuse. You know, the "Well I didn't know" excuse. That one is not for me.
