I'm 26 weeks pregnant and can hardly believe I'm thinking about birth education classes, but the time is here!
I'm looking forward to planning for a natural birth (but holding my plans very loosely!) knowing that i need to be as prepared as possible to even have a chance of being successful.

Since the cost difference between a generic hospital birth class and a natural birth class at a local birthing center is significant (4-5x the cost!), I want to make sure I make the right choice.

Here are my questions:

What class did you take? (general (natural), Bradley, Hypnobirthing, etc)
How many hours was it??
Did you feel equipped/prepared?
What would you have done differently?
