OUR ANTE NATAL
Our philosophy is to prepare parents-to-be with evidence based information and time-tested practical tips to assist our parents in their journey to be parents. The classes are very comprehensive as we believe, to be properly prepared; the parents should have information from pregnancy, preparation for parenthood, to child birth, breast feeding and care of both baby and mother after delivery. They can then make informed choices based on these information and tips.
With the jungle of information available, we understand the daunting tasks new parents encounter when trying to navigate through all these information. Therefore, the course is divided into 2 sessions.
The sessions are designed to encourage participation and sharing. Slides, whiteboard, videos and practical work are included to ensure the desired learning outcome
