Pregnancy Support - the Way You Want It, to Give You a Peace of Mind
Congratulations on your pregnancy!
It is a very exciting time as you experience all the different emotions as you prepare to become new parents. You will soon realise that you will receive a lot of questions, and also a lot of advice on which gynae to see, which hospital to give birth in, what baby essentials to buy, etc. Many pieces of advice might sound conflicting, superstitious, or horribly expensive.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, it’s perfectly normal! Our experienced Baby Planner is here to provide a logical sounding board and listening ear to guide you through some of the most important decisions you will make during your pregnancy. Her minimalist approach can also help you cut through the marketing noises you will hear from different companies trying to get you to buy, bUY and BUY to prepare for your new baby, and also provide assurance on whether you can choose to continue your preferred lifestyle through your pregnancy.
Why Consider Pregnancy Support Services?
Picking a Gynae
Learn how to ask the right questions during your gynae visits to figure whether he/she is the right gynae for you. Learn also what important arrangements to make to and ensure the best care during your hospital stay
Decorating Your Home
Have our Baby Planner visit your home to discuss the possible sleeping arrangements to minimise the stress and improve the likelihood that things work out the way you envision after you come home with the new baby
Shopping (or not!) for Baby Essentials
Plan for and buy only the furniture and baby accessories you need based on your family’s lifestyle and circumstances, so you buy the best items for your family and not end up buying things you will not use
Understanding Post Partum Care
Learn the pros and cons of different post-partum care options – live-in confinement nanny services, food delivery services, post-natal massage services, lactation consultant services or live-in helper, etc
Ensuring a Peace of Mind
Bust myths people advise you on, or understand the origins of the thinking, so as to be able to evaluate which practices you want to follow to obtain the benefits you think are important and decide your preferred pregnancy lifestyle
Private Antenatal or Prenatal Classes
Many first-time parents sign up for prenatal classes in order to understand the basics regarding the birth process, breastfeeding and baby care. These tend to be covered either through 6-8 hour courses, usually broken into 3-4 classes, and attended by 10-20 other couples. The instructor usually spends some time going through slides describing the theory on the relevant topics, and spends 1-2 hours of the course on “practicals”. These include having participants practise stretching positions to help pregnant mothers feel more comfortable, and/or participants practise breastfeeding holds, carrying, swaddling or bathing the baby using a baby doll.
Baby Planner SG offers private antenatal classes for expecting parents in the comfort of their own home, allowing expecting parents to:
- Better visualise the likely situations when breastfeeding, preparing baby bottles, bathing the baby and putting the baby to sleep
- Arrange for the classes at more flexible times and durations
- Focus more on the topics which they are more interested in and skip those they are already familiar with
- Spend more time on practicals which group classes tend not to be able to focus on due to time/capacity constraints
For more information, please see details of our Prenatal Classes.
