  5. 5. Often they describe Health Professionals “do stuff to them”<br />They are not given informed choice<br />They feel they get a substandard service<br />They have mums at home, yet they feel they are being ‘parented’ through the maternity system.<br />Could this influence their choice as to whether they attend antenatal classes?<br />

  11. 11. “Classes are of limited reach” (Renkert & Nutbeam, 2001) <br />So alternate channels for delivery should be explored and tested<br />
