Ladies- did you take a birthing class? Did you find it useful? I took a 15 hour long birthing class under the assumption that we'd learn the basics of baby care, and boy was I wrong! 15 hours of how labor might go and how much pain I could expect. I didn't find it helpful or valuable at all. If I needed heart surgery, I wouldn't take a class on how heart surgery generally goes- and I wonder if other people felt their time and money was well spent on birthing class.
