  • nope. you can also read read read about birth. i like "easing labor pain" and "birthing from within" and have heard great things about "ina may's guide to childbirth" and "hypnobabies" so i'm planning to read those too. with hypnobabies, i know you are supposed to start at least a couple of months before hand. :)

    birth is wonderful btw! it's good to be prepared, especially if you are having a hospital birth.

  • Not too early. You cannot get educated enough.

  • Definitely not too early, though it could be too late if you wait much longer. You're due in 10 weeks and the baby could arrive earlier than that. You also have holidays to work around, so you should sign up ASAP if you want to do it before the baby arrives. GL!

  • nope. you oculd come early and some classes have several classes over the course of a few weeks.

  • No, in the 3rd trimester with my 1st son I took a childbirth class, a infant/child CPR class and a breastfeeding class - all 3 were great!

  • I was high risk and finished my classes by 7 months due to the risk of preterm labor.
