    I went to the child birth class my midwives did and also took a hypnobirthing class. I found both to be very helpful.

    My husband and I took the Bradley classes - they were awesome. He initially thought he'd basically be footing the bill for our baby's birth and that would be the extent of his involvement (common understanding these days). After just the first class, he was amazed at how involved he could be and by the end of everything was super excited about being my coach. He wanted to catch our daughter, but it didn't work out, so he's going to try with this next one. He did get to cut the cord and weigh her and all that fun stuff and he was an invaluable help during labor. I wouldn't have done nearly as well without him. For the record, we had a homebirth and are planning a second with this one.

    I didn't do any of those classes. Just the child/ infant CPR class. I planned to have an epidural and I did get one. The nurses helped me with the rest.

    Nothing can prepare you for that event...NO breathing, nothing.

    I went into preterm labor. Two months before I was due I signed up for classes, but my son decided to come early!
