Being pregnant, particularly for the first time can feel quite overwhelming. There is so much planning required that you could be left wondering which task to start first.
Antenatal classes, also known as prenatal classes or childbirth education, are designed to prepare you for your upcoming labour and birth and first few weeks with your newborn baby.
Our antenatal classes aim to prepare you and your spouse to have an enjoyable and manageable labour and confident in handling and caring for your newborn. The classes provide you with answers to questions on pregnancy health , preparation for labour and delivery, relaxation and Breathing exercises , Breastfeeding , Post delivery Care and New born care.
With the size of the classes kept small; only 5-7 couples per class, new parents can expect lots of personal attention in a relaxed environment.
Sessions are designed for couples. The father or support person is urged to attend, since their role is an active and important one. During pregnancy, it is important to exercise regularly and most importantly, safely. Our pregnancy exercise classes will help you to strengthen and maintain your pelvic floor muscle strength, as well as maintain general strength and flexibility. This can help reduce your risk of pain and discomfort through the pregnancy, as well as giving you the best chance for a smooth delivery and recovery.
Please inform the instructor of any discomfort you may experience in your back or pelvis or any change in your health relevant to your pregnancy e.g. High BP, Gestational diabetes.
