  • It certainly doesn't hurt anything to take them. I did Lamaze and a breastfeeding class.

  • we took an all-day class. it sucked. we didn't learn anything we couldn't hadn't read from a book, or by talking to friends who'd gone through pregnancy/birth/labor.

  • Can you take them at the hospital where you want to have the baby? We did and it was really helpful. Yeah, a lot of this information is already in books or online, but it's helpful if someone can actually talk to you about it and answer your questions. And the best part of the classes was learning about the hospital and their way of doing things. It made me feel more confident when the big day came.
