    Are these offered as practice?

    When do you get invited? start them?

    We are first time parents who have not had a baby in our family for years, these classes should be worth it :)

    In my green pregnancy pack there was a form about the NHS ones and they say to return the form at about 20 weeks. I completely forgot to at my scan and just phoned the number instead.

    I've got my first one next week at my doctors surgery, 6.45 :) My sister did them last year and she said she enjoyed them.

    Your midwife should give you info of what is available in your area, and then you have to booked yourself in.

    I've just booked myself on the NCT ones in my area. Obviously you have to pay for them, its £137 for ours (2 six hour antenatal courses, and one six hour breastfeeding course), but I think they go over in much more detail than the NHS ones. NCT do also offer discounts for those on a low income, so worth looking at that if the cost is an issue.
