    I've sent my application form off aaages ago, but have been told not to panic as they don't usually get back to you with all the details much before 30wks.

    My MW told me there weren't enough sessions for all the pregnant women in my area to attend them, so she said to remind her at 20 weeks and she'd apply for me... But it was a stand-in MW i saw when I was 20+4 and I don't see my own MW until 24+4 so I don't know if I'll be able to get in...

    The reason I'm considering not going is that I'm really interested in natal hypnotherapy & having a natural birth, and I'm not sure I want them telling me what to do :shrug: I've asked santa for the natal hypnotherapy CDs, so hopefully that will be enough...

    We won't be doing antenatal classes: have been told by a lot of our friends that they are a waste of time, as at delivery things never go as you are "taught"! Instead, we'll be doing a yoga class together :)

    we are doing them because I think the more informed we are the better choices we will be able to meet. Plus it's a nice way to include the husband:) he feels a bit left out sometimes.

    I plan to take a class mostly as a way to maybe meet others. I haven't signed up for anything yet, probably look around for one sometime in Jan/Feb.

    I've booked an NCT course in February which is a full weekend course with my husband. Hoping to meet other couples in the area, also heard they're much better than the NHS ones but of course at a cost. My firend wants me to do hypnobirthing as well but its just a load more money, I think I'll get the book and CD and see how I get on with that
