Are you going to take/did you take birthing classes to prepare for L&D?

For our mommies to be... What is the one thing you worry most about in preparing for L&D?
For our grads/btdt moms... What is one piece of advice you'd give to a first time mommy in regards to L&D?

We took classes through our hospital, and honestly, I think it was more informative for dh than it was for me. I got some good info from it, but most of it was about stuff I already knew.

The best peice of advise I would give to a mom-to-be relating to L&D would be to make a l&d plan, but keep an open mind on the day of for changes...some changes to your plan you might want, and some you might not, but may be nessesary for you and baby. Just don't stress to much about sticking to your plan if you want or need to make changes.

Also.....pack your bags wayyyy ahead of time! It really sucked packing bags through contractions that were 3 min apart! and DH was too freaked out and wasn't much help either....so pack those bags ladies...you might be VERY glad you did!

I agree with Sam. Pack those bags early and check them twice yo make sure you have everything you need.

I guess what the girls said. This was my first and it was a c-section, but I guess I would say, have things ready.
I took the Bradley Method class and it was ok, it was very expensive and ended up not using any of it

We took Bradley classes with Cori and just did a 2 hour refresher course this time. We loved them and they helped us tremendously with both births.

My advice is to practice relaxation regardless of your plans for pain control (you never know what is going to happen). I think lots of women get fearful and try to fight against their labor, which is a losing battle. Relaxation helps so much.
