Why are antenatal classes important? 

You will hear very mixed reviews about antenatal classes (also known as antenatal courses, prenatal classes, bump classes or bump and baby classes). Some couples swear by them for the vital information required to write a comprehensive birth plan; some women feel they need the information about infant feeding and all things 'baby'. Some parents say their antenatal classes were a vital source of peer support (that is, they met other parents at antenatal classes or antenatal groups) and that they remained friends with the other parents in the group for many years. 
With all this is mind, where do we start, when we are considering antenatal classes? And do we really NEED to do antenatal classes (especially if it isn't our first pregnancy)?. Why do antenatal classes? Are antenatal classes necessary? If so, when should I start them?

Welcome to Baobab Life – a health and wellness blog for women. 
Aster Baby Scan Clinic was created by Miss Jacqueline Bamfo, a consultant in Obstetrics and Maternal Fetal Medicine Subspecialist, to support expectant parents during their pregnancies with pregnancy scans and advice.  
Dr Jacqueline Bamfo has now joined her sister, Miss Alison Amegatcher, a Registered Nurse based in California, with over 20 years + of experience in healthcare to create Baobab Life. 
The sisters want to create a space for women to find high quality evidence-based information about health and wellness. They believe it is time to change the narrative in women's health. They want to bring empowerment, ownership and support towards better health outcomes for women. Their approach is holistic, relevant and collaborative. 
So why Baobab - Baobab is the Tree of Life. It has amazing resources and can be used for numerous health benefits. And we hope that Baobab Life will prove to be a useful resource for women in Beds, Herts, Bucks and beyond.
