Breastfeeding classes: Our breastfeeding classes are second to none!
- Breastfeeding is one of the most important things you can do for your baby. Congratulations! on making the choice to BF!
- The importance of appropriate infant feeding and the vital role played by breastfeeding in child survival, growth and development are well known. Breastfeeding helps to protect the infant against some of the major causes of childhood morbidity and mortality.
- It is currently recommended that starting within one hour of birth, infants should be exclusively breastfed for the first six months of life, and that breastfeeding should continue up to 2 years of age or beyond.
- Unfortunately, infant feeding practices are still far from optimal; in many parts of the world rates of exclusive breastfeeding are low and many women stop breastfeeding earlier than they intended to.
- It is estimated that 1.5 million lives could be saved each year if infants were fed according to recommended breastfeeding practices.
- Research has also shown an association between duration of breastfeeding and reduction in risk of childhood obesity and cardiovascular diseases in later life.
BENEFITS: Your baby is smarter, healthier, with less chances of diarrhea, constipation, and vomiting. Breastfeeding also promotes bonding. It is always at the right temperature . It as cheaper and helps you to loose weight. Research has also shown that it reduces the risk of you getting cancer, and dental caries. These are amazing reasons to want to breastfeed your little star.
The Benefits of Childbirth classes:
are a great way to help get mom and her labor partner prepared for the birthing experience.
- Calm your fears and prepare for birth – Fear of the unknown and how your labor will un-fold is one of the most common fears we see in pregnant women. In fact, it’s one of the first things we try to address to help ease any tension you and your labor partner might be feeling.
- Opportunity to ask questions – It’s no secret moms-to-be and the birth partner often have a variety of questions and concerns about childbirth. Childbirth classes are a great resource for you to ask questions freely and get accurate information.
- Knowledge of options and choices– We believe in “freedom of choice based on knowledge of alternatives” and want to set every mom up for a successful birth. The common goal of all of our birthing classes is to provide you with the confidence you need to give birth and to make informed decisions during your birth process.
- Bond with your labor partner (s) – Childbirth classes not only prepares couples for birthing and parenting but also promotes well-being and increased intimacy in couples. This is a great way to spend time with your labor partner while learning about the birth experience. Your partner also gets to understand you during your pregnancy.
- Pain management with breathing and relaxation techniques – Above all, childbirth classes will emphasize the role of the support person and comfort measures for birth. We want to make sure mom and her labor partner have all the tools they need to birth with or alternative comfort measures without medication. You also get a chance to ask your questions and seek answers to your concerns with your # 1 midwife!
This test is called a nonstress test. It is an invasive test to see how your baby is generally doing. It helps the healthcare team assess your baby’s heart which depicts fetal well being. It tells us if your baby is getting enough oxygen which is very important for the development of your baby’s organs and tissues.
Your baby’s heart rate should increase with every movement, so when you feel the baby move press this monitor. The test is for about 20 -40 minutes depending on various factors e.g. if baby is sleeping, or you did not eat or drink, can produce a poor test.
You can prepare by eating and drinking 15- 30 minutes before the test and coming out of the time when baby is used to sleeping.
