Cheers ruck will ask at my next app in 2 weeks. Is it me or is there a distinct lack of information and communication?! As a first timer who never expected to be doing this i kind of expected more support...not exactly hand holding but i did expect more information etc
Hmm i only have the number for the Dr surgery and the hospital in my notes...gott ring them tomorrow to try and speak to mw so will ask...am prob just panicking am 23 weeks and they allay should start them 8-10 weeks before due date but that nhs ones get booked up fast so and have had absolutely zero info about anything
My Midwife just mentioned them today (24 weeks). She gave me details for classes in my town and the next town running on different nights. Apparently we don't have to book and can just turn up, and can also cop and change between the classes if we can't make one. I had assumed we would need to book, and an imagine that would be the case in most places.
I don't know whether to go though, Midwife said they are useful for first timers, but I am going to a Hypnobirthing course which apparently covers a lot of info. I am naturally quite anxious so don't want to worry myself unnecessarily.
I asked about the antenatal classes in one of my early MW appts and was told I'd be given info at my 28 week appointment - which I was. Basically it consisted of being told where to turn up on the first three Wednesdays of any month as they don't need to be booked.
