Advice About Lamaze

I have asked all of my friends who have children (including my sister) and none of they took lamaze classes, but felt they had no problems with delivery because they all had an epidural. I plan on having an epidural when I deliver, but I'm still wondering if I'll be in there and regret not having taken lamaze classes. Any advice? Did anyone take it and find it to be either a lifesaver or a complete waste of time and money? Thanks!

To Lamaze or Not to Lamaze, That Is My Question. :)

I had planned on going to a birthing class, i.e. lamaze class, althoug a few of my friends with kids say to save our time and money. I am not a big proponent of Lamaze, although I just thought it was a class that all pregnant women took to prepare for childbirth. I know you can never know exactly what is going to happen when the time comes, but would it be worth it to take the class? We will be doing a parenting class, but I need suggestions from other mom's about the importance or lack thereof of Lamaze. Thanks!
