    Question Birthing classes?

    When do you do them?? I had my daughter 3 years ago, and this is my partner's first child so i think its best for both of us to go again, But when is the best time to do so?

    My hospital has classes and I am doing a breast feeling class at 30 weeks then first birthing class at 32 weeks and another at 34 weekS.
    They do it late so it's still fresh in your mind.

    Also did an early pregnancy class at 20 weeks which had a lot to do with physio.

    We were booked in by the hospital to do the classes from 30 weeks, but we moved it to 34 weeks as we were going away before then. I did a breastfeeding class at 35 weeks.

    I did mine at 27 weeks. I had to book before 20weeks though so I could get a spot!!

    Hospital run classes tend to book out really early, so get onto it ASAP! I'm doing mine around the 30 week mark I think. Not too late that I'd miss out if bubs came early, not too early that I'd forget everything by the end!
