Antenatal class

We had our first antenatal class today. As I’m often away during the week we’d picked an NCT class taking place on two Saturday’s and just one weekday evening. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately depending on your point of view!) only two other couples have signed up so one of the Saturday sessions has been cancelled. As a consequence we covered everything from the first stage of labour through to changing nappies in the one day. (The contents of my doll’s nappy seemed to be particularly yellow and crumbly!) The instructor wasn’t nearly as biased as we had been led to expect from the NCT. What was a shame though is that, given that these classes are meant to be a chance to meet other couples in the same situation, the other two pairs are not particularly local.
