    Hi,
    I just wonder when is the best time to start antenatal classes? I am thinking to join NCT ones, bc this is going to be our first baby & we don't know much what to do. Due date is the 3rd week of June if the baby comes on time, so is it better to complete it in May or before/later?

    I'm going to my classes in 2 weeks when I'll be 27 weeks along. I would have liked to go later, but the other option available was cutting it waaay to close to my due date. I think whatever works for your schedule will be fine. You'll remember the important stuff. At least that's what I'm hoping!

    NCT website came up with suggested dates for us...but their recommendation didn't work as included a whole day on a Saturday when I'll be at my sister's wedding. As a result my classes will be quite close to my due date, but I'm hoping that baby will stay put long enough for me to go!

    The NCT had a course specifically for people due in May which ran through April so I've signed up for that one.

    MW suggested 30 weeks but if you phone up they'll tell you when you should be going.
