Birthwise: Your Creation, Your Choice is an antenatal education DVD that will help you prepare for pregnancy, labour, birth and life with a new baby. Leading midwife and childbirth teacher of over 30 years, Caroline Flint, will take you through a full set of antenatal classes and help you answer questions such as: What can I expect in labour? What kind of birth environment do I want? What is a "normal" pregnancy and birth? What sort of medical interventions might be recommended and how can I decide what is right for me? With so much information out there, how do I know who to listen to or what choices to make? This two-disc, 8 hour, easy to follow DVD, allows you to see real families grapple with questions, share their concerns and hopes and prepare for the life change that is having a baby. You will learn about critical topics such as breast feeding, pain relief, the birth environment, bonding with you baby, making sense of the birth experience, life with a new baby and much more. It also features a number of leading experts including a leading UK Obstetrician, as well as advice on complementary therapies, including acupuncture, birth hypnosis and the use of doulas. Birthwise exposes women, their partners and families to a breadth of real birth experiences and approaches in order to help women choose an approach to birth that is right for them. In the comfort of your own home, Birthwise will inform you, inspire you and empower you to create the birth that is right for you and your baby. If you are unable to go to a class or cannot afford expensive classes or just want to replay some of the things that you learned in your class, and more, this DVD is for you.

If you buy this DVD, I would say that you don't really need to go to NCT classes (unless you want the social aspect). Well worth the buy.
Although I haven't gone through the whole of the second DVD, it looks very promising too. Biggest advantage is, unlike with antinatal classes, you can go over specific bits of the DVD as many times as you like.
I would recommend to anyone looking for antinatal advice.
This DVD really took me from my initial stages of fear and panic to a well-informed, calm and excited first time mother-to-be! Highly recommended!
Even the very very very very annoying woman (pupil) who seems to like the sound of her own voice far too much doesn't ruin the DVD. You'll know who I mean when you watch it.
The midwife is fantastic, no nonsense, funny, what the NHS needs.
P.S-I can't stress how annoying that pupil is. But buy the DVD, it's great.

It's really helped us to understand the process. The bit on breastfeeding was particularly useful.
