Baby Wise Antenatal Course

Jeanell du Plessis

Antenatal Classes give parents an opportunity to understand the whole process of pregnancy, birth and early parenting.

What the classes cover

The Baby Wise Antenatal Classes are comprised of 4x classes per course and cover the topics of labour and birth and what to expect after the birth as well as practical breastfeeding advice and taught by Midwife, Jeanell de Plessis. The classes are relaxed, interactive and relevant to the fantastic care you will receive at Genesis Maternity Clinic. Having a healthy pregnancy is one of the best ways to promote a healthy birth. Attending Antenatal Classes will give you and your partner an opportunity to ask questions you don’t always remember at your regular pregnancy check-ups, and you’ll meet other expecting parents and make new friends.Many people find their confidence levels are increased after attending a course, which in itself makes both birth and parenting an easier prospect.Classes roll over into the next session, therefore you do not need to only start with the first class, as long as you attend all four sessions.

The Course outline is as follows

  • Week 1: Natural birth and pain relief
  • Week 2: Caesarean section and parenting
  • Week 3: Breastfeeding
  • Week 4: Baby Care
