Looking for good Natural Childbirth Classes in the Metrowest area. I live in Waltham, but would rather not drive into Boston proper to go to a class. I was hoping for a Bradley Method Class, but think I will settle for just a Natural Childbirth Class if I have to. Also open to a good class on the North Shore of Boston.

Any recommendations welcome!

Ann Marie Lindquist is in Lexington, and is a longtime Bradley teacher. Here's another thread about Bradley & she comes highly recommended (I've not taken her classes, but know her and can inagine that they are excellent!)

Several area midwives and doulas teach private and semi-private CBE classes. Check out the Mass Midwives Alliance list for more info.

Crunchy Granola Baby in Salem also offers a NCB series (next one starts May 4 - though that may be farther North Shore than you were thinking):http://www.crunchygranolababy.net/

i can definitely second the recommendation for ann marie lindquist - my husband and i took her class before the birth of our daughter, and it was awesome. i'm also in waltham and she's just a town over in lexington. if you've ever been to the lexington LLL meetings, she's a leader there. PM me if you'd like her information.
