I just signed up for a breast feeding class which I feel I definitely need to take, this class is at the hospital that I am delivering at. I also signed up for a general prenatal class, but it is offsite because the one at my hospital was 150.00 and this one is free hosted by a pediatric office.
Question one regarding BF class: Did you bring your DH and if you did was it really neccessary or should I just let him off the hook for this one? I don't mind going alone, but the lady said husbands do attend.
Question two regarding hospital tours: Do you really think I need to do this or should I just check things out on my own while at my BF class?
Question three regarding "Preparing for childbirth" class: Did you take one, and if so is it really neccessary?
In regarding to "preparing for childbirth" class the reason I ask is because I feel like I don't really want to get into all the dirty details because I feel like I already know what to expect just from being a women and I don't want to scare myself and get all worried about something that has to happen. I really trust my doctor and nurses and know that they will be there for me helping me make the best decisions at the time. My DH was also an EMT firefighter and has been a few situations in which he had to assist in a delivery, so I just feel very comfrotable with my support system which makes me want to skip that, but I want to make sure I do not end up regretting that decision.
Final question: Am I crazy with my thought process for the birth class or should I just take the damn class?
