Antenatal Programme

Once your pregnancy is confirmed, it is important to begin your prenatal care. Prenatal care is compulsory which involves visiting your doctor regularly during pregnancy. Prenatal care is important as it screens the mothers for any risk factors, prevents complications and provides necessary information and advice to ensure a healthy pregnancy. In addition to seeing your doctor for regular scans and check-ups, you should also sign up and attend an Antenatal class.

Antenatal classes are also called birth and parenting classes, they give parents an opportunity to understand the whole process of pregnancy, birth and early parenting. They also help parents to be prepared to get ready for labour, birth and early parenthood.

By attending Antenatal classes, mothers also get the chance to ask questions, get specific information about their labour and share their pregnancy experiences. Pregnancy awareness with shared experiences will help others in preventing pregnancy-involved complications. The classes can help the mothers to reduce fear, gain confidence and also prepare the parents for a positive birth experience.

Our Antenatal classes are conducted by a group of professional and experienced childbirth educators which consist of Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, Consultant Paediatrician, Consultant Anaesthesiologist, Dietitian, Physiotherapist, Lactation Nurse and Midwife.
