I went and found them really helpful, luckily in our area they were more like information sessions than getting on the floor and practising breathing. It certainly changed my mind about pain relief - I thought I didn't want to have any and came out of the session deciding to have pethidine and gas and air - which i did and it was fab. There were so many things that they told me that I never knew and would have got freaked out by if I hadn't have been prepared.
It can also be a chance to meet new friends, esp those who will have babies a similar age to yours.
