Share your experience of private antenatal classes in the UK

We’re keen to hear from people who’ve participated in private antenatal classes across the UK in order to prepare themselves for pregnancy and parenthood.

What sort of information were you taught by your course leaders about pregnancy, childbirth, and caring for a baby? Did you find the information to be useful and evidence-based? Or were there statements or comments that gave you pause for thought?

Was one mode of birth, whether Caesarean or vaginal, favoured over another, and, if so, how was that preference communicated? Do you feel that the antenatal course adequately prepared you for the realities of childbirth, or did it set you up with unrealistic expectations?
