Ante-Natal Anti-Climax

Tonight was the first of our ante-natal classes. Held at a local doctor’s surgery, they are supposed to take you through various aspects of labour and coping with a brand new baby.

Unfortunately, we got to the surgery tonight and found everything was locked up. I’d got myself all keyed up for a bossy matron telling me how and when to breathe, and then there was nothing. Just a dark building with no signs of life.

I feel a bit let down. For now, ante-natal classes just haven’t delivered (sorry – still thinking about Christmas cracker jokes).
