Recommended online birthing/labor classes?


So... I missed the boat in signing up for birthing and labor classes at my chosen hospital (booked up until 2 months after I give birth...yikesl) and I really want to get as much information as I can! It was expensive anyway. Are there any good online video resources you think are best, if you've already started one or have used it for a previous pregnancy? Even things like online newborn information and infant safety videos/classes and such would be helpful too!

Thanks.

I’m not sure about videos for infant safety but for the labor and birth pet I would read ina may gaskins guide to childbirth book it is truely amazing! It is so empowering and inspiring it was the best thing I did before the birth of my second baby.

I wish I had of read this book with my first as much as I still had a great labor it was nothing compared to my second after reading this book it truely changed my perspective on the whole thing! I am pregnant with number 4 and will be reading it again for this pregnancy.
I never did any classes or anything like that but I think a breastfeeding class if you are planning on breastfeeding is a must or even one on one with a lactation consultant they have all the knowledge you need to be successful in that area.
