When it comes to babies, Breastfeeding is best, and provides the ideal balanced diet and protection against illness. During pregnancy and after delivery, a mother’s diet should contain sufficient key nutrients. Professional guidance can be sought on diet and the preparation for and maintenance of breastfeeding. Infant formula is intended to replace breast-milk when mothers do not breastfeed. A decision not to breast-feed, or to introduce partial bottle-feeding, could reduce the supply of breast-milk. Once reduced, it is difficult to re-establish. Infant formula should be prepared and used as directed. Unnecessary or improper use, such as the use of unboiled water, unboiled bottles or incorrect dilution may present a health hazard. Social and financial implications, such as the preparation requirements and the cost of providing formula until 12 months of age, should be considered when choosing how to feed infants.

Our Baby Website mentions food, toddler milks and sometimes infant formula.

Third Trimester

As your due date approaches, prenatal classes are a great way to prepare for the birth – and break through your fears. Many women take their partners with them.

Most expectant mothers eagerly await their baby’s birth but dread labour and delivery. Why? Fear of pain is a big reason. Birthing classes can help you work through these fears in a positive way.

There will be pain with labour. But if you understand why – and how normal it is – you may be able to manage it better. Certain techniques you may learn in antenatal classes, such as massage or the use of a TENS machine, may also block pain sensations from reaching the brain.   There are many pain relief options and you should discuss them all with your treating doctor. It’s a good idea to have a rough birthing plan together so that when you go into labour you can concentrate on the job at hand.


Find a class
Your healthcare practitioner may direct you to local classes. Check the credentials of the presenter so you know you’re getting good advice. Book in early to make sure you get a place – don’t leave it until your third trimester of pregnancy.

Build your confidence

One of the aims of prepared childbirth is to teach you that you can give birth successfully even though you’ve never done it before. If you feel wobbly, breathing and relaxation techniques you may learn during your third trimester at your antenatal class can help you break the cycle of fear, tension and pain.


Involve your partner

Your partner can play an important role in providing you with physical and emotional support. Including them in all the doctors appointments and birthing classes will mean they too are more prepared when the time comes.


What kind of class should you do?

Any of the following classes may help you get up to speed with childbirth and parenting:

  • birth and labour classes
  • prenatal care
  • breastfeeding
  • parenting skills

Check with your hospital, they often run these classes you can attend.
