I had my last ever antenatal class at my maternity hospital today. 🙁 They call them “Mothers’ class”. Today’s was about delivery (of the baby, of course!).
The “class” was 2 hours long and divided into 2 parts, with a break between. The first part was a video of a woman giving birth, not too graphic, but not hollywood style either. Following this, the director of the hospital gave an in-depth lecture on all you ever needed to know, but would rather not, about birthing a baby! Actually, it was quite interesting, but the real fun part was after the recess, when we were grouped off for chatting and brainstorming.
When it was over, as with every maternity class at this hospital, we were given a present on our way out. Today, we got a buggy / stroller original cover, and as with every class, samples, magazines and a free drink coupon for the cafe on the ground floor.
I took a few random photos today, as there seems to be an interest in this topic, judging from the stats of my blog. The post Afternoon tea at my maternity hospital was shared on Facebook more than 60 times. Prior to that post, the most a post had ever been shared was 8 times!! So a very big and very sincere thank you to everyone who shared my post on Facebook. 🙂
