I love Ina May's Guide. I also did the hypnobirthing classes, and they have some really useful techniques. I mostly used a few techniques from there and at least birthing didn't sound terrifying anymore. It does sound a little out there, but oh so preferable to the hospitals classes!

Maybe you can find a class like this in your area?

I will look into it! Our midwife told us at our last appt that there is this doula who will come to your house and do classes but she charges 300$ which is a lot...

We never did birth classes or read books...we did watch one VERY outdated movie from the library, but I think we were to busy laughing about everything in it to actually learn baby came out just fine!
