When we found out we were pregnant, we knew we wanted to do some kind of antenatal classes. There are a few different options out there, but we’d heard about NCT through my Mum so we didn’t even bother looking into any others. Everyone gets offered NHS antenatal classes at the hospital they’re delivering at, so we booked onto those as well, although we never got round to doing them as I was already in hospital at that point so I literally have nothing to compare what we experienced to!
I don’t really know where to start with this one. There are all kinds of things I could say, but turns out giving birth to a baby is a pretty big emotional THING to do. So I guess I’ll just dive in. It’ll be a long un and it could get quite graphic, so you have been warned.
So if you’ve seen my latest post, you will know that I’m now a Mummy – our little baby Sebastian arrived a little earlier than expected. Because the delivery was so unexpected, I didn’t get chance to get this post up before birth, but I wanted to share more about what the husbear and I learned on our hypnobirthing course.
A few days before I was admitted into hospital unexpectedly, I had the pleasure of being invited to sample the menu at Marco’s, Newcastle. Marco’s is part of the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill chain and is best known for its steaks (clue’s in the name). I’m not a huge steak eater so I wanted to test out whether it could cater for other tastes.
