Antenatal Care/ParentCraft Classes

  • What is antenatal care/parentcraft for pregnant women?

    Parkway East Hospital has designed a 5-class antenatal course to provide you with comprehensive information as you prepare for childbirth and parenthood. We provide advice on nutrition, exercise during pregnancy, labour and care for your newborn. For optimal results, we recommend that you attend the classes when you are 4 months pregnant.

  • 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
    • Breastfeeding
    • Parentcraft – how to look after your newborn

    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 preparing psychologically for the arrival of your baby. A lactation consultant will also provide 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 pregnancy.

  • At Parkway East Hospital, you can look forward to receive treatment in a warm and comforting environment. Our friendly staff and specialists are here to see you through each step of your journey towards recovery.
