I've had what I think is pretty poor maternity care so far, part of which has been no ante-natal classes. I did complain and was assured of classes but nothing happened and to be honest I've given up hope of starting anything now. Been kinda worrying even more today as a girl at my work with who is (was) a week in front of me just had her baby this morning I have a midwife appointment on wednesday and was thinking of asking for a 1 to 1 at home appointment with someone so I can get some advice and ask questions to make up for not having any ante-natal classes. Has anyone else had this problem or have any suggestions? I know people say that when the time comes everything goes out the window but I don't know anything about the hospital I am going to and I have no birth plan or anything drawn up. I don't really know what I should put in my maternity bag. They say take one bag but then I see lists of stuff you are meant to take and it's like 3 bags worth of stuff! I have good books but I thought I would get some "official" help with these sorts of things. It is really getting me down at the moment, I feel really unprepared for the big day and I am really worried about an early labour.
