A mother’s joy begins when new life is stirring inside…when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the very first time, and a playful kick reminds her that she is never alone. The most important thing she’d learned over the years was that there was no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.
Perak Community Specialist Hospital (PCSH) held an antenatal seminar on May 5 at Hotel Excelsior Ipoh. There were about 38 couples who attended and all made it to the end with a prenatal yoga session. Prenatal yoga addresses the physical challenges inherent to pregnancy, such as a shifted centre of gravity and lower back pain. These moves will help alleviate aches and build strength in your legs, back and abdominals to prepare you for giving birth.
PCSH Obstetrician & Gynaecologist Dr Chen Yoke Chuan and Dr Pang Ay Minn and Paediatrician Dr Lo Wan-Yi, provided a wealth of information about pregnancy, childbirth and also breastfeeding to all the mothers-to-be. Bathing techniques for the newborn was demonstrated by the nurses as well.
