Visited my midwife this week and thought that we would be starting my birth plan soon. I actually thought that we would have started it before now - i'm 31 weeks. But this week she gave me a hand out with a list of classes and informed me that the NHS no longer do individual birth plans and that i need to attend a group class from the list? Any ideas when this come about? I was quite set back by it as I expected to be able to talk personally to my midwfe about something which is particularly personal to most women? Has anybody had a positive experience of these classes? Im a little wary about it and so dont know whether to even bother going? I dont think that my midwife has given me much information about options during labour etc i'm literally in there for ten minutes at a time then out, so is this what the classes would cover?
