Preparing for Parenthood Antenatal Course

Preparing for Parenthood


Parenthood is a joy and holds a wealth of excitement…

… it also presents new responsibilities for both the mother and the father, and as a couple it can be the most anxious and beautiful period in a relationship.

Having a baby will lead you to make changes in your life and requires a great deal of adjustment for all of the family.

Before baby arrives it’s important to take time to talk with your partner about all the changes ahead to ensure that you:

  • Prepare psychologically in order to adjust more easily to your new role
  • Establish support networks for you and your baby
  • Take care of yourself physically and emotionally
  • Balance your needs with the needs of your child
