Antenatal classes may come in various forms, but all have the same aim -- to help prepare you for labour, birth, and early parenthood. We, at Bliss women’s clinic  are planning to start the antenatal classes very soon with a trained instructor. Antenatal classes are quite interactive and not only help you focus on your pregnancy and forthcoming labour and birth, but they also have a great social function -- they're a great place to meet other parents-to-be.

The topics which are likely to be covered are :

• Looking after yourself in pregnancy, including suggestions about good nutrition preparation of healthy foods and what not to eat.

• Emotional and physical changes you might experience during pregnancy.

• Care of your back.
