    Default I want to pick your brains!

    Hi
    I'm a midwife about to launch into teaching hypno birthing classes.
    would love some feed back about class times.
    What times/days work best for pregnant couples?
    The whole weekend?
    over two weekends but just one day ie 2 Saturdays or 2 Sundays?
    evenings weekly for four weeks?
    Would classes in the city work?
    Or is closer to home better?
    Or in your own homes?
    would love to know your thoughts, what worked for you, what didn't work for you.
    thankyou so much in advance

    I suspect everyone is going to feel quite differently about this.

    Personal experience, I found the hospital ante-natal classes didn't really suit us. For me, doing a session at the end of the day (6:30pm to 9:00pm) and after work = exhausting, particularly as they prefer you to do these later in pregnancy when you're generally big, uncomfortable and feeling stuffed anyway. I also have gestational diabetes so this really stuffed me in terms of having something healthy to eat and take my insulin really early instead of normal time.

    We've recently done some private sessions with a midwife which have been great. Completely tailored to us so we could ask lots and lots of questions relevant to our specific situation. They were scheduled at whatever time suited us during office hours at my OB's practice. We generally opted for late afternoon so DH could finish work a bit early and be part of the session.

    If I'd had the option of someone coming to my home for sessions I would have jumped at it!
