En Selangor and me had our antenatal class early of this month, July 3rd 2011, hosted by Kelana Jaya Medical Center (KJMC) at Hotel Singgahsana. En Selangor was the one who did the survey about this antenatal class and he finally decided to registered with KJMC, which is near to his office. We were charged RM100 per couple and it was one whole day event, started at 0900am and ended at 0500pm.
It is not compulsory to attend this kind of class since most of the information can be read over the Internet and book. But, if you have some time, why not? This antenatal class can help your husband to aware on some important things during your pregnancy. This class also can help parents-to-be to acquire skills and confidence needed to make birth a positive experience =)
Basically, this antenatal class is about all of these:
- Care during pregnancy
- Information about the process of labour and childbirth
- Advice on relaxation techniques, pain relief choices
- Massage skills and breathing during labour
- Exercise during and after pregnancy
- Breastfeeding and baby bathing technique
Overall, it was an OKAY for me since I’ve excitedly waited for the breastfeeding session to come handled by the midwife assigned to learn more about it, but we only given the basic information about breastfeeding. Moreover, the midwife couldn’t answer participant’s question well. But I enjoyed the exercise part. The physiotherapist will demo the exercise first and she will go to participants one by one to make sure we did it correctly.
After class, we took the opportunity to go shopping for our little one inside. Hohyeahhhh~
