I am under the impression that we are allowed paid time off for any appointments to midwife/gp/hospital (of course) but also for any classes our midwives recommend e.g. aquanatal or pre-natal yoga. Is this correct and has anyone done this? How was it received by school? Any gripes? Last pregnancy I went to aquanatal at the local swimming pool and it coincided with my lunchtime and PPA afternoon so it was not an issue for my HT. This time round (different school), the classes are only mid-morning or afternoon so I'd need the time off. I really want to attend as I felt them to be so relaxing and beneficial but worried I might rock the boat - even if legally (?) they have to allow me time off for this. Any experience of this?
