Although I have read a lot about childbirth, we have not taken any childbirth classes. It has actually become somewhat of a joke because we have scheduled them numerous times and it just doesn't seem to work out. The first one was scheduled with our other medical caregivers and they had to cancel due to some maintenance work being done. Then we scheduled them at Northside hospital, but canceled once we were not going to deliver there. We tried to schedule group classes with one of the doulas and another couple, but the times just wouldn't work out. Then, we scheduled private classes with our doula and first she got sick, so we postponed and then she had to go out of town. I am happy to say that she is back in town and we have rescheduled a class for Sunday.
Sarah Graves, you should not feel compelled to wait for us to have childbirth classes before you come. Should you want to come before Sunday, we will wing it and it will be fine!
