We did the Hypnobabies home course and liked it. It was well worth what we spent on the course & I liked being able to do it on my own time; the relaxation tracks are great & DH & I still listen to them when we can't sleep.
A natural birth class would probably have more methods of relaxation covered and might be a more whole approach. I found Hypnobabies to be really helpful in the first few hours of labor but honestly forgot most of it and just used other techniques toward the end (like tons of belly dancing & bouncing on the ball). I think the Hypnobabies techniques will be helpful if we decide to have a second, I just wasn't focused enough because there was so much unknown going on with DD.
You could do both and take the class and still do hypnobirthing at home.
