ANTENATAL CARE

 

Pregnancy is a time of great change and you may want someone to explain what to expect while you’re expecting. From answering any questions you have, addressing your concerns and providing support for you and your partner, tailored specialised care will be offered to you and your partner to prepare you and empower you during your pregnancy and beyond. It consists in regular consultations during your pregnancy taking care of your wellness and the wellness of your baby.

ANTENATAL CLASSES

 

To help and support you welcoming your baby through the 4 trimesters. These classes explain what happens before, during and after childbirth, so you both know exactly what to expect, help you make informed choices when needed and have the opportunity to ask questions and address any concerns.

Antenatal classes provide information on all your birth options, so you and your partner can decide on preferences and draw up a birth plan. A birth plan is a record of what you would prefer to happen during your labour and after the birth. It also helps to think about how your birth partner can support you during labour and during the post partum period (or 4th trimester). 

 

Antenatal classes are a great way to prepare for a smooth and relaxing delivery, and a positive birth experience!

POSTNATAL CARE

 

After your baby is born, support and reassurance as you adapt to life with the new member of the family is very much needed, going through all the new firsts with your baby or being reminded and updated for your next babies. 

From providing breast or bottle feeding support, supporting you at home, explaining and monitoring healing processes, advising about nutrition, to providing emotional support to both your partner and yourself, providing helpful information to your partner and how he/she can support you with a professional you know!
