It all started in one fine Sunday afternoon when Kelvin and I were shopping for our little baby. We were standing in the middle of the baby section and have absolute NO CLUES of what to buy for a newborn! I always thought it would be easy and when we stood with our empty shopping cart, in the middle of milk bottles, teats in various sizes, baby clothing in different patterns, mittens, booties, face towels, nappies, nail clippers, powder, detergent, shampoo… etc. I realized that I know nothing about babies at all!! So we ended up stalking other couples and see what they bought and carried in their shopping carts… T.T
And we made up our mind to attend this 4-hour antenatal class and getting ourselves a little bit more prepared~
It was held every third Saturday of each month at Johor Specialist Hospital. Fee is RM32 per couple. Programme includes:
Nutrition during Pregnancy
Preparation for Delivery
Type of Delivery
Care of Newborn
Feeding Your Baby
Visit to Delivery Suite and Nursery
The pictures above and below were a gyneacologist demonstrate on instrumental delivery, using vacuum and forceps. Believe me, I was horrified by the different kinds of delivery methods and procedures involved. They all sounded so “invasive” and “painful”! I mean, cutting vaginal opening, incision in the abdomen, extracting baby out using forceps and suck it out using vacuum??
A trained nurse showed us how to clean the baby in the most skilful way I’ve ever seen! I think I will need a lot of practices to get it right :)
For the price of RM32.00, it’s so value-for-money! I would definitely recommend this program to those first time parents like us, who wish to learn more about childbirth and taking care of baby.
You can call 07-2253000 (ext 735) to make your booking.
Childbirths and babies are act of God!
Anything could happen during pregnancy and during childbirth labour. We, as human, simply can’t do it without His love, grace and mercy. Through today’s lesson, I realised that everyone was once the “miracle baby”. God desired our lives even when we were still in the womb. He wonderfully knits us together. He didn’t need an ultrasound to rejoice at seeing the first beatings of our hearts. And it doesn’t matter what we have been through or where we are now, He desires us still.
I touched my belly and started to give thanks.
When thou passeth through the waters, I will be with thee… Isaiah 43:2
Thank you so much reading :) Have a great day!
