When should you take a childbirth class?

Generally, the best time to begin your childbirth class is 28-32 weeks of pregnancy. Taking a class like this will help you feel confident and prepared for the hard work of birth.

"Women who take childbirth classes know more about labor and delivery and are less likely to have psychological distress than women who didn't go to classes."
