Frequently asked Questions for Ante Natal Classes

 

When is the best time to start the classes?

 

It is advisable to start the classes when you are in your 30 - 32 weeks of gestation. Ideally we aim to finish the classes about 4 weeks before your estimated due date.

 

 

Can husband attend the classes as well? Are there additional charges for spouse?

 

Husbands are very welcome to the classes. In fact, one of the topics is preparing husbands to enable them to assist their spouse in labour and delivery. As parenting requires team work, we firmly believe in preparing the team members.

 

The fee is for per couple.

 

 

What language is the course conducted in? I am unsure if I will be able to follow the medical terms used during the class. Besides, my spoken command of English is not very strong.

 

The classes are conducted in English. We try our very best not to include too many medical terminology during the classes. Most of the participants have not have issues with the simple, every day English that we use. Besides, the parenting specialists are also able to speak in Bahasa Malaysia and Chinese.

 

If you are more comfortable, we can also arrange for private classes

 

 

What type of clothing should I wear for the classes?

 

Comfortable clothing, preferable trousers as there will be exercises involved.

 

 

What if my husband cannot make it for the class? Can I attend alone?

 

Of Course! Although it would be lovely to have your husband to attend together with you for all the sessions, but if he is unavailable, you can attend on your own and update him later.
