"One thing you should do is research childbirth methods so that you know what you are looking for in a class ... do this early, because many classes fill up way in advance, and Bradley classes last 8-12 weeks depending on the instructor! Typical Lamaze classes are 6 weeks. Some other classes you may want to take are: First Aid/CPR for infants, Breastfeeding, Parenting."

"Ask your OB when you should take the classes. Or, call the place where you are going to take classes and ask them."

"Schedule [birthing classes] ASAP. Lots of them book early, and since they run several weeks usually, their time slot doesn't always correspond with your ideal time to take them. For instance, our baby's due in February and the class we're taking is 6-7 weeks long. There's no class over the holidays (which wouldn't have been convenient for us anyway), and most likely the class after the holidays is starting too late for comfort in our case. So, our class starts tomorrow and we booked it a few months ago (when it was already close to booked full)."

"I kind of wish I'd shopped around more for one -- I'm not that enthusiastic about the one we're in, but I figured they'd all be about the same (not true, from what I now know!), and the classes fill up fast so you need to sign up soon!"

You should do what feels right for you. I never felt that I needed birthing classes and my labor was only 6 hours with 4 minutes of pushing. Though now I wish I had taken some natural child birthing classes because I tried to do it all-natural, but I only made it to a 7 before I caved for the meds, LoL.

I would urge you to consider a technique that is gaining in popularity called hypnobirthing. I know it sounds strange, but it really works. A month ago we had a healthy 7 pound 4 ounce girl. My wife was completely peaceful throughout the birth, with no drugs whatsoever, and she says that pain wasn't even a big part of the experience for her. In short, the birthing went exactly like they said it would in the class. We're recommending the class to everyone � which is a big difference compared to our friends with kids. None of them thought their birthing classes helped much at all.
