Antenatal Classes - How To Choose?

You've just found out you've got a bun-in-the-oven and then suddenly a fload of questions flog your mind...what am I going to tell the family? when will I start showing? how do I prepare for the arrival of my baby? and is there a difference between all these fancy antenatal classes?

In todays time and age, moms and dads-to-be are really spoiled for choice.
Many couples attend classes at the hospital, which they have chosen for delivery. Those are mostly free. But there are other options. Midwives also provide childbirth education, occasionally for free. A more expensive form is an aqua natal class, which can be more fun. Otherwise you can choose if you want to go in a ‘Mothers Only’ class, or in a “Couples” class. If this is not your first delivery you can go to a refresher course. Which ever you choose, book ASAP and ensure that the teacher knows what she is doing....being comfortable and getting the most out of classes is what counts.
