Recommended antenatal classes?

Postby Matmat » Wed, 09 Apr 2008 11:30 am

Hi,
I'd like to book some antenatal classes. Could you recommend some? I'm 28 weeks pregnant and this is my first child. I've lived in singapore for 8 months and am hoping to meet other expectant expats. Thanks!!

Hey Matmat!

I'm 28 weeks pregnant this week too, my 1st child.

I'm delivering at Mt Elizabeth hospital, and I think I will do the classes there as it's right opposite my husband's work which is easy for him.

Would you like to meet up sometime and go baby shopping or grab a tea/lunch?

x Sammy

Hi What a good idea!! When's your due date? Mine is 29th of June.
At the moment I'm on bedrest, but I'll be going to the antenatal at Mount Elisabeth too.
Could you PM me?
