I am pregnant with my 2nd daughter due April 6th 2010. With my first daughter i went into preterm labor at 28wks and then delivered her at 35wks after being on complete bedrest. I did not take any birthing classes obviously and got an epidural for the pain. The anesthesiologist had to poke me 14xs to get the epidural to stick due to some back problems i have and since that was 6 years ago i can only assume my back has gotten worse rather than better so i am preparing to not have an epidural this time around. So i guess my question is do you ladies think we should take birthing classes this time around? Do they really help with pain management techniques or do i pretty much know what i need to since this isnt my first pregnancy? thanks!!!
