Hi ladies, can anyone recommend any antenatal classes in the UK that are led by down-to-earth and modern teachers? Ones where you've walked away feeling good and then found you weren't feeling so let down post-birth, in terms of the expectations vs. reality? Don't get me wrong, the expectation vs. the reality can always be different! thank you
We did NCT classes and thought they were fantastic. It was all very positive and we talked about a range of birth experiences and how to prepare, and we also spent time focusing on relationship issues and parenting and what it's like after baby arrives (which I think is frankly much more challenging and overwhelming than giving birth). I felt very supported and we made some lovely friends.
