3.0 out of 5 stars Good Alternative, January 8, 2011
This review is from: Perfectly Prepared Prenatal Class (5 Dvds 4 Audio Cds) Childbirth Education DVD with Yoga, Relaxation, Learn about Labor and Delivery, Breathing Techniques, Post Partum Recovery, Birth Options, Pain Management, Toning, Nutrition in Pregnancy, Postpartum Weight Loss, Natural Child Birth Video (Baby Product)
Ideal for someone with limited time but probably not the same as a live birth class... if you're like us and can't make time for a weekly trip to a birth class this is extremely convenient. But if you're not an auditory learner or if have plenty of time to study up on childbirth you could locate some of the information on these discs yourself if you have access to a good pregnancy library or if you're willing to splurge for a few books. A daily commute made this set a cinch for me. There are a lot of discs!

I liked the yoga dvd and I loved the Prenatal Toning routines. The prenatal Cardio dvd requires a birth ball or fitness ball which I did not have. I had to purchase one locally to do the Prenatal Cardio routine which was actually really fun.

The program sort of assumes you've decided to go natural and doesn't really discuss the pros and cons of medicated versus un-medicated birth. It sort of skips that step and goes straight to the how to manage pain without interventions.

If you want assistance making that decision or just prefer to be a self-study, I recommend the Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth (not a fun read but good facts) or Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way (well organized but beware: lots of nude sketches I embarrased myself when I turned the page at the airport). It just depends on how you prefer to get your information.
