We went before DD1 and it was informative. I actually had to think back to some of the tips when I had DD2 It depends on the kind of labor class you are attending, but they tend to provide tips and practice on focusing on something other than pain/contractions, have DF help relieve the discomfort by rubbing or providing pressure on certain parts of the body (mainly lower back, what I remember) ... I think we also saw a film (I can't remember). It's been a while for me, I'm sure our doula gals can provide more info on what to expect, but you'll probably learn a good deal and don't worry about age. Everyone there is probably a FTM and all in the same boat, no matter how old
