The doulas that my midwife's practice usually work with, also offer one-on-one childbirthing classes in your home, but their classes are composed of only four 2-hour sessions. While I don't need to make a decision for some time (only just found out I'm pregnant), I'm trying to figure out the pros/cons of going this route vs. bradley classes.
One one hand, since I think we are going to get a doula, it seems like having the person who will be helping me in labor also teaching me the techniques would be useful. On the other, 4 sessions just doesn't seem like enough, and I'm wondering if the 12 session Bradley classes might be better, since it allows more time for practice in between, even though there would be less individual attention. All advice welcome!
