    nothing to be nervous about... my first class was about childbirth,MW sat there with a plastic pelvis, a dolly and a placenta talking us through how the whole process worked, chatting about this & that in between.

    2nd class was about various pain relief options available to us..

    3rd was/is a hospital tour, but i wont be going to that..as ive already been on it

    there is a 4th class, but i think thats about BF and something ive done my own research on and have come to my own decision about.

    We had our first one the w/end just gone.

    I must admit some of the talking about labour scared me a little to start and I found myself feeling angry towards my OH :blush: (weird huh?) but after I had had time to digest what we had been discussing I feel lots better. I actually enjoyed it and the MW was funny and nice. We did have the obligatory know it all bloke in there though :growlmad:.

    Some people have slated the NHS ones to me but so far so good I say :thumbup:
