Does anyone think that taking a birthing class is a must for FTM? Being on bed rest my doctor said she would be ok if we still went. This being after we were clearly annoyed in the waiting room as some lady told us her nightmare birthing story and ended it with, "but good luck!" And then we had our appointment. My husband and I were both kind of like really?! My pregnancy has totally not gone to plan. At all. And I'm ok with that now that I'm at almost 35 weeks and I'm doing ok. Now my fear is if we go I am going to have all these plans in my head and none of it will happen. I just am kind of in the mindset where the doctors will do what they need to do. We did watch some online ones birthing classes. What do you ladies think? Is a birthing class a must?
