Hiya Ladies, Think the title says it all really. Hitting 25 weeks this week and would love to do a class around 30-32weeks... Are the classes booked up well in advance, am I too early or too late? Thanks :lvs Ps.. I am attending Rotunda Public

i'd give them a ring today as they usually book up very fast but they might have a space open for you.

They are very good at getting back to you so will fit you in as soon as they can. Usually they run an initial class around 20wks and then from that they schedule in the remaining classes. The first and last are physio and are brilliant - well worth attending. Fingers crossed they contact you soon.

I ideally would like to be booked in for class 3 (Labour) and then cont from there. I know the ideal Gestation age is 30-32 weeks, but I just wanna make sure that I get my slot. Awh yeah they are pretty fast on returning calls, not too worries about that
