    Hi all Im from the 3rd trimester. Im currently at college hoping to go on to uni to study midwifery, I was wondering if you could find the time to fill in the following questionnaire which I have wrote to find out how valuble NHS antenatal/parentcraft classes are (this has nothing to do with any NHS research, its purely for my course). Only fill it in if you've had a pregnancy which has gone into the antenatal class period (usually 28 weeks!)
    Just copy and paste the original questions in to your reply and put an X by your chosen answers.
    Thanks all, im aiming on 100 replies altogether so it would be much appreciated if you have the time and energy to fill it in
    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
