Antenatal care classes will prepare you for your baby’s birth by teaching you:
- Maternal nutrition
- Relaxation training
- Breathing exercises for the different stages of labour
- How to look after your newborn (Parentcraft)
Besides regular visits to your obstetrician, you are encouraged to attend classes to help you prepare for parenthood. You will be advised on practical issues, while also preparing psychologically for the arrival of your baby. Not only that, a lactation consultant will give advice on breastfeeding and caring for your newborn baby. You will also be taught what to expect for your baby’s development and the changes in your body at every stage of your pregnancy.
