Hubby and i decided to go for an Antenatal class, after getting advice from my friends who are new mum's. So got a recommendation from Tiesha to either check out Prince Court or HUKM. So, called both the hospitals to enquire about the classes. At last, we decided to go to HUKM, as it is more reasonable - the class was scheduled on the 22/5/2010 & it's only RM100 (for each couple).
So left the house an hour before the class started, which was scheduled at 8am, but when we were there we notice that the class was only gonna start at 8.50am... sigh... so we re-registered ourselves at the entrance... and got this goodie bags, which basically have magazines from Papa & Mama, Pureen sample products, leaflets/car sticker/folder/photo frame from Wyett, Antenatal manual book, our schedule for the day & etc.
The class basically covered everything about pregnancy to delivery, and we even had break every 2 hours - basically for tea time, & lunch.
First topic was about - Pain relief in Labour
An anaesthetic came to talk about Epidural and other forms of pain relief's used during labour. She even brought a sample of the wire used for the epidural, which basically is a thin plastic tube which is implanted into the spacing of your back bone, this will help reduce labor pain when we have heavy contractions.
Than there were other topics too... but the most interesting ones were vacination, breast feeding - which the head nurse really stress the importance, due to the beneficial values of a mother's milk to her child. They even demonstrated the exercise which is prescribed for pregnant women, including breathing techniques when we experience contractions and situations in the labour room.
All and all, it was a good experience, both Adam and I enjoyed the class and so did baby - coz he was busy moving and somersault in the womb... by the time we're done, i was exhausted due to his vigorous movement. By the time we reached home it was already 6.30pm, and i headed straight to bed for a nap... coz i was too tired... hehehe.
That's all for now... my next blog is gonna be interesting - coz i'll be touching something on Islam & signs that the end of days is drawing near... thanks to the hubby... ^_^
Till than ~salam~
