Did you take a birthing class? Time well spent? Or a waste of our time? PIOG

We did for our first. It was an awesome experience, mainly for the memories and bonding between us as a couple. We laughed A LOT, espeically when our instructor brought out the yoga balls and expected us huge pregnant ladies to sit on them.

I did for my first baby.  I think it was worthwhile.  I didn't take another with my second, having done it already was more valuable than the class was, lol.

I didn't, but wish I had. I read books, but I think the classes would have helped keep me more calm while having my first. I didn't breathe pretty much the whole time, the nurses kept yelling at me to breathe. With my second, it might have been helpful as well, but I think we managed pretty well with her.

I took Lamaze classes when I gave birth to my second and third and it was the difference between night and day. Back then they didn't do epidurals and it was well worth it.

I took the class offered thru the hospital & some of it was worthwhile but some of it was a waste of time. I won't choose to birth in a hospital again but with a midwife instead. If she has something that she offers I would attend that class.
