I haven't read the other replies but we did one run at our hospital and I was glad we did.
I think it was more beneficial for the dads than the mums (because I did a lot of reading, researching etc) but they also did a run through of what to do when you do go into labour and showed the dads what would happen and where, plus it gives them more of an insight into what to expect.

I paid around $140 for classes in a public hospital. Waste of time and money, but only because I read and read and read everything I could get my hands on. The calm birth classes were so much better and hubby got a lot of out them, with practical advice and help with what he could do when it came to labour.

Thank you so much everyone again. You've given me a great list of questions to think about & ask about. We see a midwife at our obs practice every month so I will ask her for some info. Maybe she gives private classes too or could recommend someone who does. She works at the hospital we will deliver at which is where my midwife neighbour also works.
Knowing about pain relief is definitely something I need to learn about so thank you so much for raising this :-)) I'm keen for whatever is on offer if needed lol. And I also hadn't planned that I mightn't have bf experts handy every 5 mins at the hospital.
What do i want from the experience is a tricky question & not something I'd thought of. Am I naive to say I just want to do whatever the experts tell me to do to get the baby out safe?
My husband is really laid back & I tend to do all the planning of things. I'm really glad you girls have raised the question of how does he feel about classes & I guess the whole plan. He was very young when he had his kids & the relationship with his ex was rubbish. He comes to every appointment with me so along with learning about pain relief options lol I need to learn what he wants from the experience :-)) thanks for reminding me it's not all about me :-))
