I have entered details of the antenatal classes my wife and I attended. I can not recommend them enough.

fab stuff!

Bits that I know nothing about, but would be interested to know are registering the baby and getting its first passport - including handy photographers that do it within the new guideline dimensions (pah, biometrics on a baby, honestly!)

---
hehe... there's a bit of an interesting non-sequitur there, after your entry, matthew!
"I entered these classes as a petrified father to be and came out an excited father to be. My advice would be to get out there as soon as possible (even if you don't really feel like socialising and you haven't been able to wash your hair for the last week)"

Don't worry, I'll sort it out.

Good stuff!

I just added category tags to make it easier to find, in the lifestyle page, also linked the UK consulate passport page in there at the bottom.

There's some hospital info knocking around already if anyone can check that to see how up to date it is, and perhaps link to that from this, with costs perhaps?

fab, thank you for that, Bob.

I had a quick look at the hospitals page and it just had links to their websites, but no additional info.

hmm... no edit tab... strange!

Anyhow, i was wondering if anyone knew of a photographer (or several) who are capable of doing passport photos for babies? I haven't seen a single one around!

that's really handy, thanks! What a good idea!

The passport office guidelines do say that home-printed photos may not be good enough quality, but I'm sure most people have access to their offices' high quality colour printers.
