Pregnancy Programme

Antenatal (Parent Craft) Classes

Ante natal classes are provided to help parents prepare for the birth of their new baby. Topics discussed include signs of labour, managing labour, feeding, breast and bottle and going home with a new baby. A tour of the maternity department can also be arranged.

Aqua Natal

Aqua natal is an easy, fun way to exercise during pregnancy! It maintains and improves stamina for labour, birth and postnatal recovery. Women usually have a shorter birth, allowing them to have an enjoyable birthing experience. Other benefits include: alleviating low mood, decrease stress, aid sleep, decrease swelling, improved circulation and improves posture and balance. All of which have a positive effect on your baby.

It is a great opportunity to meet new friends and speak to a health professional in a relaxed environment.

Classes are held in Templemore sports complex on Wednesdays at 9.30 am.
