As a mother of two beautiful children myself, I highly recommend you do an antenatal course to prepare yourself for the exciting journey ahead. Although exciting, the journey can sometimes be difficult emotionally an physically. By having some tools available in the form of the correct information can assist in laying some of those worries to rest, knowing what to expect and when to expect them. Assisting in interpreting those various stages of pregnancy’s signals more intuitively.
The following topics are dealt with in the Belly-Up Antenatal Course:
1. Pain relief
2. Bag for labour
3. Medication for pain relief
4. Birth Plan
5. Guidelines for dad
6. Becoming a parent
7. Postnatal depression
The Belly-Up course consist out of five classes:
1. Baby Care
2. Infant feeding
3. Birthing options
i. Signs of labour
ii. Stages of labour (First stage and second stage)

5. Pregnancy niggles (third trimester)
