At Mother and Child, majority of the postnatal classes which are offered are of an educational nature. For example, their four-week New Mothers Get Together programme provides new mothers an avenue to meet other mothers in the same situation as them and discuss topics like feeding problems, common illnesses and the issue of going back to work after giving birth.
They also offer postnatal massage sessions, which focus on helping to restore your body to its pre-pregnancy state by retraining muscles and connective tissue. These sessions are held in the comfort of your own home.
