    We get a whole day and they have called it an active birth class! It's not until 27th jan so I'll be nearly 37 weeks!

    And DH is coming!

    Had my 1st class tonight! My OH came with me..he really enjoyed it. Tonight's session was broken into 2 parts..1 hour each. The first part was all about breast feeding, questions we had about it and we watched a wee video as well. The 2nd part was with a physiotherapist..who told us all about back care in pre labour...all very informative!

    Thats what our first class was about tonight! Was quite informative actually - enjoyed it! OH was glad we went too, and think he learned quite a bit (although he felt a bit sick at her description of 'the show')

    My midwife hasn't even mentioned ante-natal classes to me. =( Maybe she'll say something when I'm there next week.

    Make sure u ask Nona. I had to book mine myself and was lucky to get a spot. I will be nearly 37 weeks when I have mine so fingers crossed Pip doesn't arrive before then or I'll be clueless!!

    My midwife phoned today to tell me that the course I booked my place on (first I've heard of it) has been postponed from this Monday (good job - else I'd have missed it) until next! At least I know what's happening now.

    We booked ours today for end of Feb/start of March. Are you ladies doing NCT classes or just the free NHS ones out of interest? We were going to do NCT but it worked out at £230 so we have used the money to buy a tumble dryer and doing the freebies instead!!! lol

    We're going to the NHS ones. Found it surprisingly good after some people have said they were crap. Me and OH enjoyed it and can't wait for the next one!

    We're doing the NHS ones too as the NCT ones worked out at £320 in our area and we thought it was better spent on stuff for cub. But I'm glad we're going for the NHS ones now as a lot of people (including midwife) have said the NCT ones are lovely but very much geared towards natural without any complications at all and the NHS ones are a bit more practical and because we do them in the hospital you get to actually see the environment on the day (this might just be in my area though)
