As I am nearing 30 wks I realized that I haven't even thought about taking a childbirth class. I took one offered by the birthing center with my last pregnancy which was ehh useful and originally planned on taking their required refresher - but now that I risked out of the birth center I'm not sure what to do. I really have no interest in the one offered by the hospital and I don't really want to shell out a huge amt of money or time for an independent class when I don't know how much it will be pertain to my situation. Is there any use for a class if I'm having twins?
That brings up the additional issue of a doula - based on my previous delivery (did not have a doula, ended up on pit and stuck on monitors so I couldn't rely on my planned coping mechs) I was thinking a doula would be very helpful as I will again be on monitors and tethered to a hospital bed. Do you think it is important for me to find a doula with experience with twin deliveries? Is it important to find a doula who has provided services at the hospital I am delivering at?
