I don't mind . I hope the midwife can help. I found the classes invaluable, especially when I was in labour. When I gave birth to DD there was nothing I didn't understand and I didn't at any point feel scared.
That is outrageous. I found antenatal classes very helpful. I don't understand why you aren't in the right catchment area if you are able to go to ones further away. Can you ask your midwife to intervene?
I have been informed that I am not able to take antinatal classes on the NHS as I.m nit high risk enough (even though I am seeing a consultant) and in the right catchment area. I have looked at other classes and they are either too expensive or the free ones are too far for me to get to as I don.t drive and would have to go on my own as my partner wouldn't.t be able to get the time off work as they are during the day and the times for them take up half the morning (plus some walking maybe need which would take a lot of puff out of me). I am new to mumsnet and this is my first post. Where do you lovely people think I stand on this and do you think I should challenge my midwife for a place on the NHS?
