Hi Daisybells

My hospital has advised me that all antenatel classes at the hospital have been cancelled due to swine flu. I am looking into the NCT ones too, just waiting for someone to call me and let me have details.

Hi Daiseybell,

I think you just need to go for whatever classes you and think will be right for you - i know some people have liked the intense 2 days NCT courses as they get to know people better.

I just going for the NHS classes as there are no NCT classes in my area and also as my friends mum is a mw and she has given me quite a bad impression of nct classes, she said they give mums an unrealistic idea of birth which often causes problems when women dont follow mw advice but try and stick to the nct advice (she said shes feels this can but the lo at risk).

Good luck
