Antenatal Classes to help prepare for childbirth and parenting, Postnatal Home visits and Breastfeeding assistance with Sr Chantelle Slabbert in Roodepoort.
Pregnancy can be one of the most exciting experiences of your life, but it is often negatively impacted by fear and uncertainties.
I believe that knowledge is power, and my aim is to equip you with the facts you need to make informed decisions regarding your pregnancy, birth and the care of your newborn.
Antenatal classes can make a tremendous difference to your birthing experience, equipping you with the knowledge and skills you need to make confident, informed decisions. This will ensure that you have a positive, satisfying, and above all, empowering birthing experience, regardless of the type of birth you choose.
