Anybody found there childbirth classes were a waste of time?

Has anybody found their childbirth classes were a waste of time?

I had one tonight but when I got there, was only one other couple so we decided to leave...

Am I going to regret not going especially if I can't get an epidural?

Like is the class really that important?

  • I took them the first time, it was so booring. And when I went into labor I didn't use an ounce of the class.

  • Keep in mind I cannot get an epidural. Is the class really going to take my pain away?

  • I liked going. My mom was way more into it then me though LOL. She went with me because my husband worked during the time of the class. Well come time for delivery... she was trying everything they had taught us.. tell me how to breathe and all that. She was so funny. But helpful. I think the class would be really good for you.
