antenatal class

Hubby and I went to Antenatal Class which was held at Columbia Asia, Puchong last Sunday. Had to be there before 8.30AM for registration and since it was still early when we reached there, decided to go for breakfast first. It worth to wake up early and had the chance to enjoy the morning breeze and peacefulness of Sunday morning. Columbia Asia is located at Bandar Puteri, Puchong and I am planning to deliver there as the gynecologist and hospital are highly recommended by my friend who just delivered at that hospital in September. Furthermore, the hospital is equipped with modern facility and it has this cozy environment that makes you feel like you are at home. It is neither big nor small, just nice. The class started at 8.30AM and ended at 2PM. Talks were given on physiology of normal pregnancy, the labor- what every woman should know, video shows on normal birth and c-section, common problems in newborn, epidural anesthesia, video show – epidural, tips to reduce backache during pregnancy, breast-feeding technique, ward tour and was concluded with antenatal exercise. Breakfast and lunch were provided and each couple received a door gift & RM50 voucher to shop at this company which sells baby products. The tips and info are very useful and really help to prepare young parents like us for Labor, Birth and Early Parenthood. Sangat puas hati and love it! I almost cry when they showed the videos of the birth. It is a miracle to see how babies come out from that tiny “place” and I think all the moms-to-be who watched that videos shared the same feeling. It helped the dads-to-be to understand the process of labor and see the actual thing. At least they have ideas on what women will face when the time comes. Hubby even started to treat me differently after the class and now he knows what pregnancy & labor actually mean. I strongly suggest if you have the opportunity to go to the class with your partner, please go. It will be an unforgettable experience for both of you and help yourselves to prepare for the parenthood life.

Owh, HaPpY 18th BiRtHdaY to NaNa-Dut!
