I have applied for a place at the Parent Education Workshop at the hospital which includes sessions on:
Pain relief and induction of labour;
Relaxation and positions for labour;
Breast feeding; and
A tour of the maternity unit.
This is free as it's run by the NHS but my husband is unlikely to be able to attend as he is probably still going to be in Afghan on that date - I'll still go with my sister or mum if he's not here.
I've searched the net for private classes and they are a little pricey but are they worth going? One of them offers a newborn workshop which is only £50 for a private 121 session which I think would be useful but just not sure on the Antenatal workshops. They are either £120 for 4 sessions or £180 for 121 session of 4 hours.
