For those of you who used the Bradley method during birth, did you take classes or did you prepare in a different way?

Since my time is running out I'm trying to figure out my options here.

Thanks!

I didn't use one specific method, but I did read the bradley book and it was really great. The chapter for husbands is especially great.

if you can find a class, go for it!

I took Bradley classes and also read 2 books on it (Husband Coached Childbirth and Natural Childbirth: the Bradley Way).

I read the two books I mentioned in the other thread. I wasn't able to afford a class.

I was going to look into it but I don't want to put all that pressure and responsibility on my husband. He's the worried "okay what do I do now??" type rather than the take charge "I GOT this!" type. Better make sure you're husband is fully prepared!

Having him be prepared by reading/taking a Bradley class would probably help him. If he doesn't know what to do taking a class to teach him what to do would be helpful, no?
