    Had my classes booked and was going 13th feb for a one off session 11-5 with oh. Then breast feeding classes 5th march by myself! So got a call saying the anti natal classes r over booked and I'm being moved onto next class!! Baring in mind I'm due 17th march the class they booked me onto is 12th march!!!!! I'm 19 and a first time mum, I was really looking forward to these classes and hoped they would help! I may even b having a c section so wouldn't make it anyway!!! It's so crap! I bet there are 30 year old second time patents going but yet someone like me gets moved and no doubt wont even make the class!
    Sucks! , sorry lol

    OMG! Thats pretty bad considering its your first baby! I wouldn't be happy, surely there has to be someone that is due later than you that they could swap round? xxx

    You never know, I have mine booked for the 2nd March, and I am due on the 16th. Just call them and ask if someone cancels please can you have their place. Also say that you are due for a c-section, and would like to go to the BF, as you believe this is important.

    When she told me new date I laughed and said r u joking? She said I'm so sorry there is no one else I can ask, we're well over booked!! I've asked to be contacted if anyone cancels not like there will be anyone but she said then the list for call backs is getting big!! Great! She did offer a sooner class, 2nd march but out of the town that I live in! I don't drive and it's miles away!!

    Could you just turn up? I doubt they'd turn you away and I'll bet they aren't 100% attended anyways.

    Maybe just play dumb? Lol

    It does suck though :hug:

    I was 18 when I has my First baby and I did go to the classes, my birth went well and everything they teach just came natural anyway, my MW thought id done the classes. I didnt get offered the BF classes but im sure the MW HV will help you out and there are loads of BF club to go to with LO where the are trained BF people and they really help!
