Who's taken them? Were they useful? Informative? Or a waste of time?
I've heard mixed reviews about these classes in general and even my doctor said some people like them and others say it's a waste of time. Thoughts?
I took the Childbirth class and only to benefit my DH. I am a NICU nurse so I am knowledgable in that department, I really wanted my DH to hear what goes on. Out of 15 men/dads, he was 1 of 2 that participated and it really helped him understand L and D. We also toured L and D and the PP unit. It was a good little class, we did it on a Saturday. If you are going to deliver at Methodist in the Med Center sign up for Womans Plus Program (online I believe). You get a little itty bitty discount on parking and if you deliver during the weekday, your H can get a meal voucher.
I did not do the Breastfeeding class. I have a huge support system of breastfeeding friends and LCs. If that is something you want to do, I would. Their LCs were AWESOME, the ones in the hospital and the ones at their Stork Nest.
Hope I gave you some insight. If I had no clue about childbirth or breastfeeding I would take a class at the hospital I was going to deliver at.
