There are a variety of different philosophies of childbirth education such as The Bradley Method, Lamaze, Birthing From Within or Hypnobirthing. Classes range from 2 weeks to 12 weeks and some are even taught in just one day. Some classes are taught in the evenings and others are taught over a weekend. Some teachers even teach private one-on-one classes in your home. It is important to find a class that fits your schedule but more importantly, a philosophy that fits your family and that prepares you for the experience of birth.
