Question Birthing Courses

Have any of you used birthing classes and have anything good or bad to say about them. I've heard of The Bradley Method, Lamaze, and

My husband is most inclined to try, both because it is cheaper, and it doesn't involve other people.

I've heard great things about Bradley so far, but would be interested in everyone else's experiences, and any other methods that are out there that I've not heard about.

I couldnt do the birthing classes because they arent offered between christmas and my due date, but I did take the breast feeding class and the infant safety course and I would recommend both to first time moms or first time trying to breast feed. They are great. I wish I could have taken the birthing classes.

I took the short course from the hospital. I'm afraid I'm not big on the natural childbirth methods - I'd rather have an epidural than try to go it alone. Good luck finding a method that works for you.
