I'm just wondering what any of you think/know about childbirth classes. My hubby is an over the road truck driver, so he won't be able to come along, and I don't have anyone to take his place as a partner. Will the classes be a total waste of time if it's just me? I mean, can I expect to remember what they teach me and be my own coach through the birth? Hubby will definitely get to come home for the birth... as long as everything goes smoothly and I don't go into early unexpected labor. But I am not sure whether the classes are actually helpful, or will I just go and feel so embarassed because I'm the only one without a partner, and then not be able to retain the info once I'm actually in labor anyway? Plus, with my work schedule, it is going to be difficult for me to make it to the classes when they are offered. But I want to be as prepared as possible, and don't want to skip out just because I don't want to go alone, or because it isn't convenient. Anyone have some experience or insights to share on this?
