Birthing classes?

Did you take a labor/delivery class at your hospital?  If you've taken them before, did you feel like they were worth it?

I didn't take any classes, but with DS I did something called "Storks Nest" which I was able to go in at 36 weeks and fill out all my paperwork so I didn't have to during L&D, and they taught me all about how to heal after delivering a baby and answered all the questions I had. It was great!

The breast feeding class was excellent and helped so much, I'd for sure look into that.

Thanks for the feedback Caryn! I think we are going to go ahead and sign up for a few classes. I need to look into a breastfeeding one for sure! I really want to have a successful breastfeeding relationship, so anything I can do to help that along would be so very helpful!

The hospital we deliver at has lots of classes.  When we had my DD we knew we'd be having a c-section so we didn't do the birthing class but did take breast feeding & CPR classes, both of which were very useful.  My DH also took a daddy bootcamp class that he thought was good.
