My husband and I signed up for a Bradley class in April; however, his hours were cut and money just isn't staying in my bank account as easily as I would like. We haven't paid yet.... the class is condensed to 8 weeks for $200. It's also almost an hour away from our home. We could afford it but it would be a stretch. I don't like to feel stretched, I have enough of that in my belly... I'd prefer it not to be in my wallet as well.
My sister took Bradley and she said it's absolutely needed. My mom said "ppffftt I had all 5 of you kids natural and no one told me how to do anything." I'm sure this is an exaggeration since all of us were born in a hospital with an OB but the general idea is there.
Can I just get books out of the library? Should I scrape together the $300+ (including gas) to take a class? I'm a first time mom so I haven't been through labor before.
