I never went to any classes when I was pregnant with my first. I donno if they would have helped or not but my labour was pretty easy considering. Haven't been this time either. I'm might be partially because they don't have classes in.my town and I wasn't going to travel an hour just to go.to one. Especially cause they were at night. And we have heaps of kangaroos. Lol

I have never attended any and am not intending to either. Not to say am confident ofvwhat I am going to go through but I don't see them reducing pain I will experience. And I wont have a partner to go with do am just waiting for the d day.

DH and I are taking a full day saturday course offered by our hospital.  We're not taking it until I'm 34 weeks because the classes filled up so fast.  its not cheap (over $200) but we can claim it towards flex fund (medical pre-tax).   This is our first kid and I feel like we could use all the help and extra pointers we can get.
