I am definitely planning on taking a childbirth class. My hospital offers 2. The first is a 3 hour abbreviated class ($50) that discusses the lingo, timing contractions, stages of labor, pain management, Cesarean birth, postpartum recovery and newborn assessment. The longer class is 8 hours ($100) and includes everything offered in the abbreviated class, as well as comfort measures and relaxation techniques, patterned breathing, and labor positions. So my questions are: which one would you take and why do you think it's the better option? TIA!
